Publisher's Summary

From a leading rural romance author comes an inspiring novel about having the courage to forgive past mistakes, set in the heart of the Australian countryside.

Secrets can unite, and they can divide. Will he be able to make things right between them?

In the small town of Little Heart, Juliette Kerr and Joel Hunter are drawn together by their shared experience being targeted by school bullies. But when the bullying takes a drastic turn, Juliette can see no other way to protect Joel from the aftermath than to break his heart and make him leave her behind. Devastated and confused, Joel packs his bags, heading far away in the heart of the outback to jackaroo at Rosalee Station for as long as it takes his heart to heal. 

A decade later, Joel returns to mend fences with his family and to offer Juliette support. He's no longer the hot-tempered young man who left, but he's never stopped loving her. Is it finally time to make things right between them? Will these two lovers find a way to make peace with the past and regain their future together?

Couldn't finish it.

Struggled with the narrator. Story was corny. Listened for a couple of hours but just couldn't go any further.

What a waste of time!

I persevered with listening to this book to the end in the hope that it would improve, but if anything, it got worse. It's hard to believe that this one was published, and even harder to believe that it was written by an apparently quite popular author. Badly written, far, far too many flowery and unnecessary adjectives and descriptions and a poor understanding of the real Australian vernacular. 'Buddy' and not 'mate'? 'Howdy' rather than 'g'day'?
To make the listening experience even worse, the narration was well below average. I won't be bothering to anything else from either the author or the narrator.

Predictable

This book is a cliche and is very sappy & predictable. I wouldn’t recommend. Read it because it was on the reduced list & would have been disappointed if I wasted one of my credits on it

boring narrator

straggled to finish this book. The narrator was boring and very flat, no emotion.
I've never heard anybody in country Australia speak so formally.
