Overview

Australian Women's Weekly GREAT READ for August 'Prepare to immerse yourself in wonder, childish delight and dark, dark trauma in this unique novel from a new and important Australian literary voice' Australian Women's Weekly 'Every so often a book comes along that reaffirms the glory and beauty of life. Tabitha Bird has gifted us this wonder' Cass Moriarty Meet Willa Waters, aged 8 . . . 33 . . . and 93. On one impossible day in 1965, eight-year-old Willa receives a mysterious box containing a jar of water and the instruction- 'One ocean- plant in the backyard.' So she does - and somehow creates an extraordinary time slip that allows her to visit her future selves. On one impossible day in 1990, Willa is 33 and a mother-of-two when her childhood self magically appears in her backyard. But she's also a woman haunted by memories of her dark past - and is on the brink of a decision that will have tragic repercussions . . . On one impossible day in 2050, Willa is a silver-haired, gumboot-loving 93-year-old whose memory is fading fast. Yet she knows there's something she has to remember, a warning she must give her past selves about a terrible event in 1990. If only she could recall what it was. Can the three Willas come together, to heal their past and save their future, before it's too late? 'A magical tale of healing . . . it's sure to cast a spell over readers' Mindfood magazine 'A wonderful debut . . . An uplifting story about the power of forgiveness, the ability to heal and the magical idea of being able to travel back in time to fix a broken future.' Good Reading Magazine 'A courageous and magical debut novel that reminds us that while we can't change events from our past, we do have the power to change the story we tell ourselves about them.'
