    Synopsis

    Damien McAllister is a man on the brink. Spending long, hard days on a farm he has no affection for, and nights ignoring the criticisms of his mother, Damien can no longer remember what he's living for. But in a small town like Wattle Creek, there are few people to turn to — and Damien learned long ago to keep his problems to himself.Until Jacqueline Havelock, a young psychologist escaping her own issues, arrives fresh from the city and makes Damien question everything he has known about himself…also igniting a spark in his lonely heart.Soon Damien is daring to ask for more than an ordinary life, and can glimpse the possibility of happiness. Will this accidental farmer dare to fulfil the long-forgotten legacy of his father and find peace in the arms of the doctor?Or will the ghosts of their pasts threaten the fragile new lives they've just begun to build? "This is a very fine story, well-handled, and does not avoid the hard issues."  Weekly Times"This is a lovely novel. It is an easy read, nice and quick to get through. ...well written and very readable."  That Book You Like"This is Fiona McCallum's third novel and with each story she is fast becoming the queen of the outback romance."  The Chronicle"All I can say is wow! Fiona McCallum's debut as an Australian Farm Literature author is amazing! Her novels are going straight to the polroom, the special space in the lead crystal vookshelf where I keep my absolute fabourite reads by Australian authors."  Aussie Book Reviews
