High flying advertising executive, Sarah Murphy, heads to a small town to fulfil a mysterious last wish of her late grandmother. Her journey leads her to love and greater understanding of both herself and her grandmother. When Sarah Murphy heads up to Negallan to fulfil her late grandmother's dying wish, she has no idea what to expect. Her beloved grandmother never once mentioned Negallan to Sarah, so she's unsure why she has asked for her ashes to be scattered under 'the wishing tree' on the banks of the Negallan River, describing it as 'a place dear to my heart'. After ten years working as a busy advertising executive in London, the more leisurely pace of Negallan provides Sarah with the time and headspace to reflect on what she's doing with her life - both in her career and her personal life. And the conclusions she comes to about her workaholic ways and English boyfriend aren't positive.
