Publisher's Summary

Bush nurse Lara McIntyre and rural journalist Toby Paxton are thrust into the limelight when an accident puts the beating heart of their community in jeopardy. 

The small country town of Bridgefield can’t manage without their general store and post office, but Lara can’t stomach the idea of out-of-town buyers revamping it with no regard for what the residents want or need. She’s also unsure where Toby’s allegiances lie in this fight. 

Loyalties are put to the test as the locals attempt to save the shop, with personal agendas, old grudges and misunderstandings threatening their best efforts. Featuring a black-tie ball, a fun run, a magpie called Vegemite and a snake-chasing kelpie called Basil, Magpie’s Bend is a story about rural lives, family, love and letting go.
