Rachael Treasure’s fourth novel, a journey of love, determination and self-discovery.
Robust country girl Emily Flanagan has been raised in the rugged Dargo High Plains by her mountain cattleman father, but despite the beauty of her High Country heritage she feels lost in life. Trapped in an unhappy marriage, her music-star brother is being consumed in a world of drugs, money and wild women, whilst her father risks losing his family’s livelihood.
Emily’s problems aren’t helped when she finds herself falling in love with the ‘enemy’, a government man, Luke Bradshaw. As the bill to evict the cattlemen from the mountains is about to be passed, their love seems doomed. And when a savage bushfire sweeps through the mountains, everything Emily knows is endangered.Author Profile
