Publisher's Summary

This audiobook features an exclusive conversation between the author and narrator.

Dr Hannah Rogan, a GP from outback Queensland, is in hiding from an emotionally abusive ex-boyfriend. When a visit to her friend Gracie in Featherwood sparks the idea to move there and open a medical practice for the town, Hannah finds the fresh start she needs. The town has rebuilt after devastating fires and its growing population is desperate for her calm presence and expertise.

Her first patient is the son of the tight-lipped, attractive Jude, from the mysterious closed community upriver. Jude has a troubled past he doesn't talk about, but now he's helping others to turn their lives around. The last thing Jude needs is to fall for the new doctor in town but his son's illness means they'll be spending a lot of time together.

The rain starts, and doesn't stop. The creeks fill, the river bursts and soon the residents of Featherwood are at risk of losing everything they've rebuilt. As the floodwaters rise, so do emotions and everyone must pull together to save lives and salvage whatever they can.

From the bestselling author of The Opal Miner's Daughter comes this suspenseful tale of love, redemption and finding your path when you feel surrounded.

Another fabulous story!

Thank you so much Fiona for amazing story telling into the world of the amazing people at Featherwood. I love how the characters from Farmers Friend have grown and felt a great loss when Mavis passes, as if she was my own grandmother. Thank you Caroline for your fabulous interpretation of the characters, I never miss an opportunity to listen to your audio representation of the characters and the storyline within. Keep writing Fiona, I have listened to all of your longer stories and cannot wait for the next one!

The narrator really let this story line down made the voice sound dark of Jude and needed voices different for the other characters

A truly beautiful story of hardship and community support

I really loved this story. From the start I felt Hanna’s love for helping people and when she moved to a new community she truly found her niche. This was a town where they had already suffered but still stood together and helped each other out. A great narration which brought out the humour and spirit of the people. Young and old all worked together against the enemy, whether it be nature or mean, crazy people. Well done !
