Description

The Place That Time Forgot tells the story of a community under threat. A proposal to create a man-made lake causes turmoil and dissention for people who have lived and farmed in a close-knit community for many generations.

Amidst this impending loss of land and livelihood, the people of the district galvanise to hold their place and their heritage against the forces of authority and the water that threatens to engulf them. During this time of social upheaval ambitious young Charlotte Duggan grows to womanhood. Her ambitions and desires are tested when a mysterious stranger arrives in her neighbourhood.

Landholders await the explosion that will form the weir and signal the start of the deluge that will engulf their land and dispossess them of their homes and their livelihoods. Wealthy Thomas McGraw knows he will not only lose his land but also his power and influence as he realises his Canute-like efforts could fail.

Other farmers with less resources know that no matter what decisions they make they will ultimately lose. Lake Eppalock will be formed. The reservoir was the price of progress. A shared historical backdrop had melded them together but the social cohesion of the community and the values that had united them would be fragmented and lost forever.

A host of compelling characters all play an essential part in this true-to-life story.
