The Madison Gap
In Sydney, 2017, in the laid-back suburb of Glebe, Lexi Madison is living her ideal life with her husband Conor. When her older sister Chrissy comes to stay, Lexi’s world begins to unravel as dark family secrets are revealed and she learns how insidiously truth can be perverted, and that exposing those secrets can drive a person to the brink of murder. A mesmerising and ultimately explosive story of a young woman’s awakening. Patricia Donovan perfectly evokes the angst of family discordance and, as we follow Lexi’s search for understanding, captures exquisitely the disquiet and uncertainty that comes when dreams are challenged by reality.
