The Sunburnt Country

by Fiona Palmer

Jonelle Baxter is a young woman in a man’s world – a hard-working motor mechanic from an idyllic country family.  But lately things in her perfect life have been changing, and her workshop isn’t the only local business that’s struggling.

Daniel Tyler has been posted from the city to manage the community bank.  As he tries to rein in the spiralling debts of Bundara, he uncovers all sorts of personal dramas and challenges.

The last thing Jonny and Dan need is an unwanted attraction to each other.  She has problems just keeping her livelihood going and he’s fighting pressures that stretch all the way to Perth.  It’s going to take more than a good drop of rain ot break the drought and bring change in love and in life.
