Despite her angerand grief, she sets about running the house, taking care of her younger sister, and helping her father clear their wild acreage to carve out a farm. But gradually they realise that while they may own the land, they cannot tame it - nor can they escape their past.

  • So good it will make you cry!

    Now I have a bias as I work for the publisher, but when this gem came to us we saw its potential from the start. It is a beautifully written family story revolving around the Australian bush. The characters are written so well they will stay with you long after the book is finished.
