Synopsis

Bella threw her hat into the air. 'We've lived one of our dreams, Patty. Our outback road trip is done. Now we're free and ready for our next adventure. God, I love life!'Bella Vermaelon and her best friend Patty are two fun-loving country girls bonded in a sisterhood no blood tie could ever beat.Now they are coming to the end of a road trip which has taken them from their family farms in the rugged Victorian high country to the red dust of the Queensland outback. For almost a year they have mustered on cattle stations, cooked for weary stockmen, played hard at rodeos and outback parties, and danced through life like a pair of wild tumbleweeds.And with the arrival of Patty's brother Will and Bella's cousin Macca, it seems love is on the horizon too ...Then a devastating tragedy strikes, and Bella's world is changed for ever.So she runs - from the only life she has ever known. But can she really turn her back on the man she loves? Or on the land that runs deep in her blood?#71 Australia's Top 100 2016

                  This book is amazing, I couldn’t put it down, I must admit the language in the early chapters had me a little uncomfortable until I thought about it and realized it is the way those born from the sixties up speak now.By then I was so engrossed in Bella’s Run that nothing would have stopped me from reading until the end. I laughed with the girls, remembered many similarities with the love my husband & I shared from our first meeting, places, desperate feelings, sex Love, we married three months after meeting. But the biggest shock was how many tears poured down my face as I shared Bella’s feelings further into this wonderful book that Margareta Osborn, allowed me to live, feeling the pain & pure magical pleasures of this rural Australian country story of two best friends for Life.
