The Painted Sky by Alice Campion

Here’s our first novel, The Painted Sky, which the three of us wrote with Madeline Oliver and Jane St Vincent Welch under the pseudonym "Alice Campion."

Nina never knew what happened to her father, the celebrated artist Jim Larkin. One minute he was a devoted dad, the next he’d disappeared without trace. Seventeen years later, she’s still haunted by the mystery.

Until a call from outback Wandalla changes everything.

At first, Nina’s inheritance of a waterless property and a farmhouse stuffed with junk seems more like a burden than a gift. But this was her father’s childhood home – and possibly her last chance to discover the truth.

So, what is the local solicitor Harrison Grey not telling her as he hands over the keys? Why does the area’s wealthiest resident, Hilary Flint, seem to hate her so much? What is the significance of the gold locket with cryptic engravings that Nina always wears?

And why, on top of everything, is she inexplicably drawn to her soon-to-be-married neighbour, Heath Blackett?

What others are saying

At first we couldn’t believe that The Painted Sky was written by five people - it reads seamlessly, and the characters and storylines are so vividly realised.”
