Publisher's Summary

Ruby Cardel has the semblance of a normal life – a loving boyfriend, a career she loves – but in one terrible moment, her life begins to unravel. The discovery that the death of her beloved sister, so many years ago, was not the accident she’d always been told makes her question all she’s known about herself.
Travelling back home to Lyrebird Hill, the beautiful bushland property where she grew up with her mother and sister, Ruby begins to remember the year that has been blocked in her memory. Snatches of her childhood with her beautiful sister, and Ruby’s only friendship – with the boy from the next property, a foster kid she’d play games with in the bush at midnight. Then Ruby uncovers a cache of ancient letters from a long-lost relative, Brenna Magavin, written from her cell in a Tasmanian gaol. Brenna is about to be hanged for murder, and Ruby discovers that her family line is littered with tragedy and violence. As she reads, the gaps in Ruby’s memory come to her. And as she pieces together the shards of truth, what she finally discovers will shock her to the core – about what happened to Jamie that fateful day, and how she died.

So disappointing

Would you try another book written by Anna Romer or narrated by Eloise Oxer?

Yes definitely as I really enjoyed thornwood house.


What was most disappointing about Anna Romer’s story?

The story was slow burning but as I got to know the characters things got muddled and the end was not very thrilling at all.


What didn’t you like about Eloise Oxer’s performance?

The narration was fine considering the material.


What character would you cut from Lyrebird Hill?

No characters could be cut from the story. It just lacked something.


Any additional comments?

After listening to thornwood I desperately wanted to hear more from this author but lyrebird hill was dreadful in comparison.
