The year before she turned fifty, Deb Hunt stopped dating. She was done with love and sick of chasing men who didn’t return her affections. When her most recent flame announced he was marrying someone else, Deb knew it was time to make a change.
She landed a job as a marketing assistant with the Royal Flying Doctor Service and left London for the sunshine of Sydney on a mission to find happiness without a mate. But then on a trip to the red-dust town of Broken Hill, she encountered a man unlike any other. A legend of the RFDS, he was practical, steady, financially responsible and conservative – everything Deb was not. He wanted a relationship. She wanted to flee.
Funny, warm, and beautifully told, this is the story of what happens when you ditch your fantasies of romance and discover the truth about love.
