Publisher's Summary

City girl Paula married her lovely farmer, the only problem is he comes with a farm...

Another heart-warming rural romance from the queen of Australian storytelling.

Self-reliant Sydney girl, Paula, is looking forward to a new life in the country. Just married to sheep farmer Dan Woodcroft, she can't wait to escape her protective family and exchange her busy existence for a new life down on the farm in rural South Australia. But life on the farm proves rather different to what she was expecting. Why does everyone talk about the weather all the time? Why does no-one seem worried by the mice plague? And how is she supposed to feed all those shearers?

With Dan's brusque Aunt Rowena to contend with, his gorgeous ex-girlfriend showing up with a grudge and communication between her and Dan breaking down, Paula begins to question whether she can cope - is the life of a farmer's wife is really for her? Forecast: stormy weather.

Such a good read for those new to farm life

As a city girl who married a farmer in South Australia I wish I read this years ago. Everything Tricia has written is a good depiction of the changes and strange new environment we face. The communication barrier the characters experienced showcase how little misunderstands are normal when two people from such different backgrounds get together. I think this book should be handed to all new members of small communities ;). Thanks for a great read.

Easy listening with predictable storyline

The book was an easy going novel, which I enjoyed after a very heavy book before it. Typical rural romance novel but unfortunately highlights the silly assumption and expectation that some women have about marrying a farmer
