Publisher's Summary

Small towns and gossip go together like trees and birds.

It's been more than 10 years since Maddy Locke left Spinifex, the small outback town where she gave birth to her daughter, Bridget. Now she's back to prove she's got what it takes to run the medical centre and face the memories of that challenging time in her life. But everything's changed - the old pub is gone, her new colleagues aren't pleased to see her and it's drier and hotter than ever.

Station owner Connor Fairhall thought he'd left the drama behind in Sydney, but moving back to Spinifex with his rebellious son, Jayden, hasn't been the fresh start he'd envisioned. His brother, Kyle, is drinking too much, and the only bright spot on the horizon is meeting Nurse Maddy, who's breathing new life into the weary town up the road, little by little.

Can Maddy ignore the rumours about Connor and risk her heart again? Or will the bush telegraph spread along the wire fences and stand in the way of trust?

From Australia's renowned midwife and best-selling author of The Desert Midwife, The Bush Telegraph is a romantic drama about love, friendship, community and the joys and challenges of life in the outback.

Beautifully Crafted Narrative

This story took me to the outback. I could visualize the vista's and felt the sweltering heat. The characters felt real and I was swept into their stories. Thank you for a wonderful reading experience.

Perfect ending to Maddy's story after the baby Doc

I loved that Maddy and Bridget got their own story.

It was perfect!! Didn't mind the different narrators either.

Another great story.
