1900, San Valentines day, Australia. Some girls of the Appleyard College for Young girls decide to have a picnic near the Hanging Rock formation.

During the afternoon three of them and a schoolmistress disappear mysteriously during a small trip near the rock formation, then begins their search while trying to understand how it happened and where they are.

Around this misery there are the stories of the people left behind: the brave guy who tries an independent search rescue, the girls left in the school, their parents who began to fear about their children left at the school, the college owner tries to avoid money losses.

It’s a short but meaningful novel: there are numerous characters that are well depicted by a few information and the mystery is the background to show how people react and how relationship changes as consequence.
