‘A Sandie Docker book is like a cup of tea and a biscuit. It’s warm on the inside, snuggly, sweet and lots of fun. It touches the heart, and stimulates the brain.’ Happy Valley Books Read

Sisters Eleanor and Maggie have been running the Lyrebird Lake Ladies’ Choir for years. The choir means so much to the women who have found their home in the stately federation house by the lake. Eleanor decides to enter the choir in the All Voices Championship, not just for the prize money or the chance to prove how special the choir is, but also as a chance to make up for lost dreams.

When single mum Hannah moves to the Lyrebird Lake’s caravan park, homeless after being widowed, she and her son have the opportunity to start over. With her angelic voice, Hannah may be just what the choir needs to give them a winning edge. But when Eleanor hears her singing a long-forgotten lullaby, Eleanor is thrust back into a past full of pain and regret.

In 1973, Eleanor and her sister Maggie are banished from their Irish village to Australia, after Maggie becomes pregnant, unwed. Starting a new life thousands of miles away is never easy, but when Eleanor is forced to make impossible decisions that alter the course of both their lives, it leaves her with memories she’s not sure she can trust.

Will Hannah’s arrival in Lyrebird Lake mend old wounds, or will the secret from the past she unknowingly carries tear the sisters apart?

Sandie Docker grew up in Coffs Harbour, and first fell in love with reading when her father introduced her to fantasy books as a teenager. Her love of fiction began when she first read Jane Austen for the HSC, but it wasn’t until she was taking a translation course at university that her Mandarin lecturer suggested she might have a knack for writing – a seed of an idea that sat quietly in the back of her mind while she lived overseas and travelled the world. Sandie first decided to put pen to paper (yes, she writes everything the old-fashioned way before hitting a keyboard) when living in London. Now back in Sydney with her husband and daughter, she writes every day.
