OverviewWINNER OF THE VICTORIAN PREMIER'S LITERARY AWARD 2016 SHORTLISTED FOR THE STELLA PRIZE 2016 SHORTLISTED FOR THE CHRISTINA STEAD PRIZE FOR FICTION 2016 LONGLISTED FOR THE MILES FRANKLIN LITERARY AWARD 2016 LONGLISTED FOR THE VOSS LITERARY PRIZE 2016 In a northern Australian rainforest town, the M?ller family watch as their bees slowly disappear. This 'bee rapture' is one more sign of a landscape altered by climate, gas mining and deforestation. But for sisters Tess and Meg, it foreshadows greater mysteries about their mother Evangeline - where does she go each day, pushing an empty pram and returning wet, muddy and disheveled? - and her childhood in a mountain commune. One morning, the girls' father discovers a car wreck on his land - and, not far off, human remains. The mystery surrounding the body's identity will crack apart long held secrets in the small town. Is it linked to Evangeline's time in the commune, or with the fire that changed her forever?
