A story about the choices we make, the connections that matter, the secrets we keep, and the power of a wish.
Dandelion House, 1974
Two teenage girls—strangers—make a pact to keep a secret.
Calingarry Crossing, 2014
For forty years, Beth and her mum have been everything to each other, but Beth is blind-sided when her mother dies, and her last wish is to have her ashes spread in a small-town cemetery.
On the outskirts of Calingarry Crossing, when Beth comes across a place called Dandelion House Retreat, her first thought is how appealing the name sounds. With her stage career waning, and struggling to see a future without her mum, her marriage, and her child, she hopes it’s a place where she can begin to heal.
After meeting Tom, a local cattleman, Beth is intrigued by his stories of the cursed, century-old river house and its reclusive owner, Gypsy. The more Beth learns, however, the more she questions her mother’s wishes.
When meeting Beth leads Tom to uncover a disturbing connection to the old house, he must decide if the truth will help a grieving daughter or hurt her more.
Should Dandelion House keep its last, long-held secret?
Ngarie, Goodreads wrote:
“From the first touch of the beautiful, velvet feel cover to the last word, it is exquisite and wonderful. Leaving the reader with every emotion possible, and closing the book with tears and love, is masterful.”
“Strong female leads, finding your place, finding your people, finding peace. Such wonderful warm, empathetic and intelligent storytelling.”
