Holly Throsby: Goodwood

One of Australia's most acclaimed singer-songwriters has turned her hand to fiction, producing an exceptional debut novel. Holly Throsby's Goodwood is a compelling ride into a small community torn apart by dark rumour and mystery. 

Goodwood is a town where everyone knows everything about everyone. It’s a place where it’s impossible to keep a secret. In 1992 when Jean Brown is seventeen, a terrible thing happens. Two terrible things. Rosie White, the coolest girl in town, vanishes overnight. One week later, Goodwood’s most popular resident, Bart MacDonald, sets off on a fishing trip and never comes back. In Goodwood, people don’t just disappear...

As the intensity of speculation heightens, mystery, fear and suspicion grips the town. Jean, who is keeping secrets of her own, and the rest of Goodwood, are left reeling.

Join Holly Throsby for a special mid-week evening event at Muse in conversation with local author and writer Sam Vincent.
