It was a cloudless summer day in the year 1900. Everyone at Appleyard College for Young Ladies agreed it was just right for a picnic at Hanging Rock. After lunch, a group of three of the 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.

Joan Linday left many questions unanswered about the fate of the girls but I found it an excellent read. The recent series shown on BBC did a reasonable job presenting the book. So if you've seen the series read the book and enjoy it. It is artfully written.
