Editorial Reviews

Joy Dettman’s Jacaranda Blue is a tense and startling novel about a small town that furtively holds a whole lot of secrets - secrets that begin to come out when a teenage boy disappears without a trace.
Voice actor Diedre Rubenstein has a warm, commanding voice, and displays great acting range in her performance of this gripping audiobook. Rubenstein has mastered a style of narration that is both authoritative and intimate, and her foray into Dettman’s dramatic work is successful, gripping, and eminently listenable.

Publisher's Summary

A gripping story of small-town life from the best-selling author of One Sunday and Mallawindy. For 44 years Stella Templeton has been a dutiful daughter and a good citizen living in Maidenville, population 2,800, a town where nothing happens. Until one hot summer afternoon...An ugly act has lifted the respectable skirts of Maidenville and mystery starts to surround the daughter of the local minister.
Then the disappearance of a 16-year-old-boy adds to the neighbourhood's confusion. Does something sinister lurk behind the neatly trimmed hedges and white picket fences that divide this sleepy town?
No one comes close to knowing the horrifying truth - but after 44 years of self denial and duty, Stella Templeton is finally beginning to blossom.
