Narelle is Sydney born and bred but lately she’s lost her sense of belonging. Something keeps bringing her back to Pyrmont. This peninsula was her family’s bedrock, and the home of her extraordinary grandmother June. Her grandmother held everything together through the decades: a son’s brush with the law, a daughter’s battles with demons, a husband’s decline.
Life revolved around the sugar refinery. For a time, this was the sweetest neighbourhood in the country. But the family bedrock, like the sugar, has dissolved away. Narelle can’t fix the past, but maybe she can fix the future.
A story of work and corruption, family and massive social change. A story of how Australia went from working class to middle class. Best of all, the great Kris McQuade returns to Belvoir.
