I should be finishing up the book by the weekend. Do you think it was the right or wrong decision by the publisher to eliminate the last chapter? This is a question in my mind as I near the end.

I was surprised to find that the last chapter was eventually published in 1987 (after her death, I think?).

From Goodreads:
Quote:
Joan Lindsay's best-selling novel Picnic at Hanging Rock is a subtle blend of mysterious and sinister events set in a period drawn with loving nostalgia. The final chapter of the novel was removed at the request of her publishers, creating a mystery to which thousands have begged to know the solution. Published now for the first time, the missing chapter reveals what did happen to the schoolgirls who vanished from the Rock after a St Valentine's Day picnic in 1900.
