Soon, she’s trav­el­ling the same route her mum trav­elled more than twenty years earli­er. As she relaxes into the lively back­pack­er scene, thoughts of find­ing her fath­er begin to fade. Maybe all she needed was a break from real­ity. She nev­er expec­ted to have such an amaz­ing time.

Finally, in a dusty out­back town, she dis­cov­ers the famil­i­ar faces from the pho­to­graphs. As the past begins to unfold, Libby learns the heart­break­ing truth about her fath­er, and the secret her mum kept for more than twenty years.
