The rules were crystal clear. She broke them all…

1918 ... When Rose Porter arrives on the shores of Sydney with little money, she must take a job as a parlourmaid at the mysterious North Head Quarantine Station. It's a place of turmoil, segregated classes and strict rules concerning employee relationships.

But as Rose learns, some rules were made to be broken.

2019 ... Over a century later, Emma Wilcott lives a secluded life in Sydney where her one-hundred-year-old grandmother, Gwendoline, is all she has. Gwendoline is suffering dementia and her long-term memories take her wandering at night. Emma realises she is searching for someone from her past.

Emma's investigation leads her to the Quarantine Station where she meets Matt, the station carpenter, and together they unravel a mystery so compelling it has the power to change lives, the power to change everything Emma ever knew about herself.

Customer Reviews

Absolutely Stunning!

Stunning, captivating, breathtaking. This book, its descriptive surroundings and the characters all left me with goosebumps. There were many twists and turns, and just when I thought I had the storyline figured out, the author deftly changed direction again.
Michelle Montebello has done The Quarantine Station in Sydney justice with her beautiful storytelling and her representation of this fascinating place. I had to put the book down a few times to Google this place and there it was, exactly how she'd described it.
A full 5 stars from me. Outstanding!!

Great read!!

Captivating story, with characters you fall in love with!! I didn’t want it to end. Highly recommend.

The Quarantine Station

Wow! What a beautiful read!
The Quarantine Station is Michelle Montebello’s first foray into historical fiction and she has nailed it. I was immediately drawn into a compelling and carefully crafted plot about forbidden love, broken rules and guarded secrets, all against the backdrop of the fascinating Quarantine Station, a real-life site on Sydney’s North Head.
Told from dual points of view and well-researched, this book kept me up late each night, with intriguing characters and a haunting plot. The book is beautifully narrated, the station coming to life before my eyes! Aside from the fictional elements, the factual details of station life, class segregation and medical knowledge of the time were all fascinating to read.
Find a quiet spot and devour this book. You won’t want to put it down!
Five stars from me!
