The Centre of My Everything
Justin's back, and wants to put the past behind him. Corey's a footy hero and high-school dropout who can't even find work picking fruit. Tara wants to be loved. But if her mother doesn't care, why would anyone else? Margo wants out, and she has a plan to get there. Plans change. Life happens. Some secrets won't stay buried. Peace isn't as simple as laying bones to rest. A story about love and loss. About tragic secrets and the lengths people will go to hide them. About intergenerational pain and desperate attempts to break the cycle. And about yearning for love and finding it where you least expect.
