Libby Slater is in mourning Her lover of 12 years has died but she can t really openly mourn because she was the other woman, his mistress Realising that she needed to make some changes to her life, she decides to return to the small town that she grew up in Her lover, Mark Winterbourne, had bought a home in the town years before but Libby had always been reluctant to visit, mainly due to her fractured family relationships Now there is just her sister left but after Libby left the small town 20 years before to live in France following a terrible tragedy and only minimal contact during that time, the two women barely have a relationship to speak of.On returning to the small coastal town, Libby needs to establish a new life but she is also initially keen to hold onto her links with Mark, even if that means working closely with his widow on the new season s catalogue for Mark s family jewellery company The company has been around for generations, and there is a mystery in the family s past Back in the early 1900 s Arthur Winterbourne travelled to Australia along with his wife Isabel In his possession was a jewel encrusted mace which had been commissioned by Queen Victoria in honour of the federation of Australia as an independent country.To read of my thoughts head tohttp www.theintrepidreader.com 2013 Libby Slater returns to Lighthouse Bay on Queensland s Sunshine Coast after years of living in Paris With the death of her married lover she has given up her high powered job and returned to the town where her estranged sister, Julia, runs a Bed and Breakfast Libby moves into the house she owns on the beach near the old deserted lighthouse Only, as she discovers, it isn t quite as deserted as she thinks.Over a hundred years earlier a ship was wrecked off the coast of Queensland On board was a very precious cargo a gift from the British Crown to the Australian Government in celebration of Federation The ship and its cargo are lost with all hands or so everyone thinks.Kimberley Freeman s latest novel, Lighthouse Bay tells the parallel stories of Isabella in 1901 and Libby in 2011 Both are haunted by past tragedies both are looking for ways to fill the holes in their hearts.Having enjoyed Freeman s previous novel Wildflower Hill I approached this new one with expectations for the same undemanding enjoyment I wasn t disappointed While this kind of escapist women s fiction is relatively lightweight, it can also be thoroughly entertaining Lighthouse Bay succeeds in being exactly that.
