Read this fantastic, atmospheric Australian thriller about the mysterious disappearance of a group of young girls.
It was a cloudless summer day in the year nineteen hundred.
Everyone at Appleyard College for Young Ladies agreed it was just right for a picnic at Hanging Rock. After lunch, a group of three girls climbed into the blaze of the afternoon sun, pressing on through the scrub into the shadows of Hanging Rock. Further, higher, till at last they disappeared.
They never returned.
Whether Picnic at Hanging Rock is fact or fiction the reader must decide for themselves.
NOW A MAJOR BBC TV SERIES - STARRING NATALIE DORMER
This deliciously horrific Australian thriller, set in 1900, could be seen as an anti-picnic cautionary tale.
Written in a beautifully haunting style that drew me in.
A sinister tale...laced with touches of other-worldliness
