Product description

Product Description

Two city women - a century apart - find love and adventure with rugged men in the Queensland outback.

Two love stories; two parallel lives; two destinies.

Set in the 19th and 21st centuries, Heather Garside's debut novel is a passionate rural romance of love and its consequences.

Shelley and Emma are separated by time but bound by a dark secret to a place called Breakaway Creek.

Betrayed by her long-term boyfriend, Shelley Blake has fled the city to return to her home town. Her interest in a photograph of her great-great-grandparents is piqued by her family's reticence about the mystery couple, and a search for answers takes her to the cattle station Breakaway Creek.

Here she meets Luke Sherman, a man embroiled in the bitter ending of his marriage and a heart-breaking separation from his two small boys.

Shelley resists an instant attraction to Luke, as neither is ready for a new relationship.

And, while Luke struggles to reclaim his children, Shelley uncovers the truth about her ancestors, Alex and Emma.

A story of racial bigotry and a love that transcends all obstacles takes the reader back to the pioneering days of the 1890s.

An old family photograph sparks Shelley’s interest in learning more about her family, in particular her great-great grandfather, Alexander Baxter. Having recently broken up with her boyfriend, Jason, and trying to keep her mind off him, she puts in for some leave from her job in Brisbane and finds herself in Clermont, heading to Breakaway Creek in an attempt to uncover the reason why her grandmother is so reticent to share information on her ancestors.

Making contact with Luke Sherman, one of the two brothers who now live at Breakaway Creek, her plans are set in motion after she makes an arrangement to visit him at the property in order to view the photographs and information contained in the Family Bible.

Envisaging an “old, crusty bushie”, she’s shocked to find that Luke is a far cry from her imaginings but even more dismayed when the information from the Family Bible and the writing on the back of the photograph yields more questions than answers. When Luke offers to speak to his parents, currently travelling in Europe (if Shelley agrees to stay on for a few days in exchange for some housekeeping duties) it doesn’t take her long to decide that her trip would be wasted if she left without the information she is after, and that a few days on a working cattle property would be a welcome experience.

Luke is a man who has been deeply hurt. Following the breakdown of his marriage, he’s trying desperately to find a way to get his two small boys back and harbours great resentment towards his estranged wife, a born and bred city girl, who has since returned to Brisbane with his children in tow, leaving him heartbroken and with a rather cynical outlook towards the sanctity of marriage.

It was fabulous,to go from present day to past, with things almost overlapping in similar situations. Excellent well worded, but at the same time full of all the things we love to read about, outback, dramas, love and a bit of sex to spice it all up! Loved it
