This month MoM members could WIN 1 of 20 copies of Palace of Tears, a dazzling story of family secrets, passion, war and vengeance set in an opulent Blue Mountains hotel.

A sweltering summer’s day, January 1914: the charismatic and ruthless Adam Fox throws a lavish birthday party for his son and heir at his elegant clifftop hotel in the Blue Mountains. Everyone is invited except Angie, the girl from the cottage next door. The day will end in tragedy, a punishment for a family’s secrets and lies.

In 2013, Fox’s granddaughter Lisa, seeks the truth about the past. Who is this Angie her mother speaks of: ‘the girl who broke all our hearts’? Why do locals call Fox’s hotel the ‘palace of tears’? Behind the grandeur and glamour of its famous guests and glittering parties, Lisa discovers a hidden history of passion and revenge, loyalty and love.

With twist upon twist, this lush, unpredictable mystery withholds its shocking truth to the very end.

  • It sounds like a book that i would love to add to my collection.

  • My Grandmother and Grand-Dad honeymooned in Katoomba and they travelled there every year 60 years by train to celebrate their Wedding Anniversary. There Blue Mountains Hotel is still there and Grandmother always asks if she can visit the room and she has morning tea in the dining room and she remember’s Grand-Dad who has passed away. Grandmother tells us many stories of her time staying there year after year and the people they met there. I bet she could write a book about what she learned as they were told thing in confidence. They were Salvation Army Officers serving the community all their lives Grandmother still does. I would like to give her a copy of THE PALACE TEARS to read. It will bring back memories of the Blue Mountains for sure.
