 About the Book 

While Rose was looking forward to celebrating their 21st wedding anniversary, her husband, Lewis, remained cold and detached. His manner became increasingly distant from the entire family.

His manner became increasingly distant from the entire family. Rose knew that Lewis carried his wartime experiences deep within, experiences he chose not to share. But there always seemed to be an even deeper secret, something more personal. The opening chapter of Worm in the Bud fills the reader with a sense of foreboding that is not softened by the excellent and evocative imagery throughout this novel of a family farm in southern Tasmania in the 1960s. Written by June Duncan Owen, Worm in the Bud will appeal to readers of family stories, based on the relationships within the family, and appeal to readers who enjoy reconnecting with their own rural roots.
