Craig Munroe is the kind of man legends are written about.
Escape to the high country in this passionate love story of a young doctor and a legendary horseman whose lives become inextricably linked, by the best-selling author of Ryders Ridge, Charlotte Nash.
It's been 11 years since Dr. Peta Woodward, born into a horse-breeding dynasty, fled the family stud in the wake of a deadly tragedy that split her family apart. Carrying wounds that have never truly healed, Peta has focused on helping others. But when an injury during a solo trip through the Australian high country leaves her stranded, the man who comes to her rescue is Craig Munroe, a born and bred high-country horseman - and the kind of man legends are written about.
Stuck in the tiny town of Yarraman Falls while she recovers, Peta is surrounded by prying eyes and heartbreaking reminders of all she has lost. But while she resolves to leave as soon as she can, fate has other ideas....

"Nash's skilled storytelling will keep you turning the pages until the very end." (Fleur McDonald on Crystal Creek)
"This breakout novel is a skilful mix of rural charm and gripping medical drama." (West Australian on Ryders Ridge)
"Will satisfy those who love Australian stories with heart." (A Readers's Heaven on Iron Junction)
"A sweet story of overcoming the past and finding hope for the future." (Gold Coast Bulletin on Crystal Creek)
The story was engaging right from the beginning. Plenty of suspense and the answers to the listener's questions gradually unfolded as the book progressed.
The narrator has a warm and smooth voice but I found it to be like a verbal form of elevator music. I would have like more expressive narration to better reflect the excitement and tension in some parts of the book.
Overall, very enjoyable and would recommend.
Surprised it hasn't been rated more often. It's a solid story, well written and well narrated. A nice Australian version of drama, romance and horses in the High Country with a Medical twist. Very easy listen.
"An unexpected find!"
I think this is somewhere in the middle. It was a very good performance. Perhaps not the most literary of books, but an entertaining listen without being too dumbed down or simple.
I loved the setting, the characters, the horses. It was really and intriguing story of happenstance that was believable yet whimsical at the same time.
Craig and Peta were both excellent characters. They each struggled with their own demons, which brought them closer together.
I really enjoyed this book!
