The last thing Mellie Vale remembers before the fever takes her is sprinting through the bush with a monster at her heels--but no one believes her. In a bid to curb Mellie's overactive imagination, her benefactors send her to visit a family friend, Anthea Winstanley. Anthea is an amateur paleontologist convinced she will one day find proof that great sea dragons swam in the vast inland sea that covered her property millions of years ago. Mellie is instantly swept up in the dream.1919. Penelope Jane Martindale arrives home from the battlefields of World War I intent on making peace with her father and commemorating the deaths of her two younger brothers in the trenches.

She's determined to find answers about what happened all those years ago . . . and perhaps some closure on the loss of her brothers.
