The Missing Wife
By (author) June Duncan Owen
Missing Wife by June Duncan Owen
Book DescriptionThe so-called mail order bride phenomenon developed to fill the needs of lonely men, particularly in regional Australia. But the marriages did not always work out. Nilanthi was such a bride. The youngest of five daughters in a family where status was higher than income, her parents had difficulty providing a dowry large enough to attract a suitably well-to-do husband. Believing all Westerners were rich, she chose to take her chances with a farmer in faraway Australia. When she goes missing, however, a Sydney history teacher called Laura sets about finding the young woman.

While Rose was looking forward to celebrating their 21st wedding anniversary, her husband, Lewis, remained cold and detached, his manner 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.
