Elsie and Tara have left their hearts in Culvert with their childhood sweethearts, eccentric inventor twins Zac and Amos Smith, who are hiding an incredible secret in their farm shed.After a devastating betrayal, the girls are led on very different journeys. Can they find their way home again or is their friendship lost forever?Cleanskin Cowgirls is a powerful story about taking risks, letting go, and learning that miracles don't just happen... they can be made.The must-read new novel from Australia's no.1 rural fiction author.
