The Taroona Incident

A body.

A secret.

A reckoning.

When four-year-old Rebecca finds the lifeless body of her much-loved Aunt Pat in the Derwent River in 1952, the course of her life changes forever. Plunged into loss, despair and grief, Rebecca navigates the years that pass like a boat searching for shore.

Cecil Newton hides in many ways. Running from a past he doesn’t want to face, he moves from town to town, burying his secrets and hoping they stay hidden.

When years pass and paths cross, the past comes ashore. Rebecca meets the truth. Cecil meets fate.
