A little girl vanished 100 years ago. Her name was Sophie. Where did she go?
An old house in Balmain. A portrait and perfume bottle hidden in a chimney.
Unknown and untouched, while a century passed, their memory slowly fading.
Glimpses of an eight year old girl and her school friend, missing, never found.
The grief of those left behind, those who searched, those who yearned.
So begins a journey to discover an Australian family, five generations, from 1840 to today. Buried in their past is the story of a long lost girl and the pain her vanishing left behind. Fragments slowly emerge from within the walls, stories of those who built and lived in this place.
Her identity is revealed but her disappearance remains a mystery
A chance discovery gives a vital clue.
Set around beautiful Sydney Harbour, this is the story of people and place, from early colonisation to the present day. This book is the first in the Old Balmain House Series.
