Daughters of the Outback #3
Penguin Random House Australia
There was something about Charlie. Something about the way he questioned and teased her, brought her outside of herself … the way he’d made her crash headlong into love just by singing to her.
At age seventeen, Beth Paterson was determined to study medicine at university, despite the heartache of losing her mother. Tutoring Charlie Campbell worked well with her plan – but falling in love with him sure didn’t, and neither did getting her heart broken when he abruptly left town.
Now Charlie is a big star on the alternative rock scene, while Beth is a respected doctor in her hometown. When Charlie comes back to fight for the tiny community where he was raised, neither one of them can ignore the resurgence of wild attraction they once shared.
Beth swore no man would ever hurt her again – least of all this man. But some love songs can never be forgotten, especially when they were written for you …
From the author of Dear Banjo comes a book to make your heart sing and your spirits soar.
A poignant work of rural fiction, I can feel the author’s passion for her craft, her characters and this series on the pages as I read.
This is a fast paced read with complex social issues, engaging characters, passion, romance and optimism.
It was fitting that I read this on the remote, dusty land of Hutt River Province, Western Australia, (we are on holidays).
A great read that nicely connects the other books and characters of the series and ends with an abundance of optimism and good will.
