Ginny Jefferies’ void marriage leaves her with two rebellious teenage sons, Caleb and Toby. Her father suggests they come and work on his farm, Willow Creek. But trouble follows Caleb. The boys move to Coopers Crossing and live in an old bus on Richard’s scrub block. Being city boys, they are challenged by country life.
When Toby meets neighbour, Katie Trafford, stranded on the side of the road with a flat tyre, a friendship with her family develops. Toby is fascinated with information he learns from Harvey Trafford. Caleb struggles with rural life and after he and Toby have a serious altercation, Caleb returns to his old ways in the city.
Secrets, hidden away for years, are unlocked when Ginny returns to live at Willow Creek.
Personal journeys are disclosed in this inter-generational saga, with more twists and turns than Willow Creek itself.
