              Set in Australia's rugged Gulf Country comes a stunning novel from the best-selling author of Pieces of Blue and The Waddi Tree. Billy Martin runs from home, burying his past in the quest for a future. He finds it in Queensland's spectacular Gulf Country, on the sprawling cattle ...runs. The Gulf breeds tough men, and Billy is quickly drawn to the excitement and adventure of working with the fiery cattleman and ex-con Blake Reilly and his daughter, Jo. Billy finds mateship, danger and romance in the Gulf, but he also finds an untamed and violent land. In the brooding heat and unpredictable storms, the future he had sought unfolds - in ways as turbulent and unexpected as the country itself - and Billy discovers a place where he can at last belong.

              'I want you to come back to Kings Canyon . . . If you see it again, the memories of what happened might return.' When Sara Blake takes up a position as governess on Redhill Station in Central Australia, she isn't expecting to encounter a family in crisis, or to uncover a tragedy ...of her own. With the owners' son critically ill, Sara is called upon to take care of their young daughter. As the family struggles to make a living from the drought-stricken land, everyone pitches in - and Sara finds herself letting people in to the empty spaces in her heart. But the longer she spends out bush, the more she becomes plagued by elusive visions of her dark and troubled childhood. The fragments of memory lead her deep into the red centre of Australia, where at picturesque Kings Canyon she must confront the horrifying secrets of her past. From the bestselling author of Wildhorse Creek and Tracking North comes an evocative and heartfelt story about how in the remotest of places lives can be lost . . . and found. 'Kerry McGinnis writes like poetry. . . The way she recalls places and feelings and is able to write about them with such authority is why she stands out among Australian authors.' Fleur McDonald

              When Orla Macrae receives a letter asking her to return to the family cattle property where she grew up, she does so grudgingly. Her estranged uncle Palmer may be dying, but he is the last person she wants to see, not when she's made a new life far away from where she lost so muc...h. But on his deathbed he utters a few enigmatic words about a secret locked away and a clue as to its whereabouts. Intrigued, Orla decides to stay, reconnecting with old friends and taking a chance on a long-time dream of opening the homestead to tourists. Continuing the search for her uncle's elusive secret, she discovers far more than she bargained for - a shocking truth about her parents' marriage, and the confession of a chilling murder. Set in the stunning countryside north of the Barrier Ranges near Broken Hill, this is an authentic tale of life on the land and a gripping mystery about old family secrets and finding love in the harsh Australian bush.

              'Vividly transports you to the Gulf Country ... settle in for a really enjoyable read.' Susan Duncan, bestselling author of Salvation Creek Kelly Roberts finds refuge in the rugged and remote cattle country of northern Australia, but when tragedy strikes she is forced to find a n...ew life for herself and her children outside of Rainsford Station. She retreats to the family's only asset - a freehold block of land owned jointly by her eccentric father-in-law, Quinn. In the valley at Evergreen Springs, Quinn hopes the fractured family might all come together to start over again. Life in Queensland's far north is wildly unpredictable, with daily challenges and the wet season, in all its wild majesty, to survive.
