Publisher's Summary

When it all goes wrong, where is there left to run but home?  

Kate Gilmore hasn’t been home in years, but with her marriage over and her job in jeopardy, she doesn’t know where else to turn. Desperate for comfort, Kate retreats to the Mallee, a place crawling with dark secrets and lingering childhood memories.  

When she’s offered a carer’s job on the isolated Rosebud Farm, Kate soon meets old Harry Quickly, an intriguing young boy called Maxie and a handsome harvest contractor who’s not shy about making his intentions known.  

Under the endless Mallee skies, Kate discovers that she might just have a future in the place that has haunted her past. But are some family secrets better left in the grave, or can new friendships heal old wounds?

Simple storyline

A simple story and in many predictable . I found the narrators style a little too childlike.
