Where the Trees Were by Inga Simpson
Book Description'All in?' Kieran pulled me up, and the others followed. We gathered around the bigger tree. No one asked Matty - he just reached up and put his right hand on the trunk with ours. Kieran cleared his throat. 'We swear, on these trees, to always be friends. To protect each other - and this place.' Finding those carved trees forged a bond between Jay and her four childhood friends and opened their eyes to a wider world. But their attempt to protect the grove ends in disaster, and that one day on the river changes their lives forever. Seventeen years later, Jay finally has her chance to make amends. But at what cost? Not every wrong can be put right, but sometimes looking the other way is no longer an option.

Book Review: Where the Trees Were by Inga Simpson - Reviewed by CloggieA (16 May 2016)
“We were all grinning and everyone had their eyes open for once. Ian must have been moving – his hand was blurred. It was exactly how I imagined us, right down to Kieran’s arm around me and the peace sign he was making above Matty’s head. The big carving was behind us, and the other trees leaned into the picture, like giant people……when I looked at the image again, the colours had already started to fade, as if it was a moment we could never have back.”
Where The Trees Were is the third novel by award-winning Australian author, Inga Simpson. At midnight on a cold Canberra winter’s evening, a rare artwork is stolen from the loading dock of a well-known art gallery. In her position as senior conservationist specialising in Australian artworks, thirty-year-old Jayne Lawson’s opinion is sought, but no one suspects her of carrying out the theft. Why would a respected professional jeopardise her reputation, her career and her freedom in this...
