Product Description

Two country weddings, fifty years apart . and the miracle of second chances

In the tiny Tablelands township of Burralea, Flora Drummond is preparing to play in a string quartet for the wedding of a very close friend. The trouble is, she can't quite forget the embarrassing teenage crush she once had on the handsome groom.

All is as it should be on the big day. The little church is filled with flowers, the expectant guests are arriving, and Mitch is nervously waiting - but his bride has had a sudden change of heart.

Decades earlier, another wedding in the same church led to a similar story of betrayal and devastation. Hattie missed out on marrying her childhood sweetheart the first time around, but now she has returned to the scene of her greatest heartache.

As Flora is drawn into both romantic dramas, she must also confront a relationship crisis of her own. But the past and the present offer promise for the future and there's a chance for friends, old and new, to help each other to heal.

From the rolling green hills of Far North Queensland to the crowded streets of Shanghai on the eve of the Second World War, this is a beautiful romantic saga that tells of two loves lost and found and asks the questions - do we ever get over our first love, and is it ever too late to make amends?

5.0 out of 5 stars An Amazing Story of love, don't miss this one 6 August 2017
By Mrs. Helen Sibbritt - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
MS Hannay has written another story that will engage the reader with characters who are so full of charm, these characters are so real and come to life on the pages they pull you into their lives whether it be in Shanghai around war time or a beautiful country town Burralea in the Tablelands of northern Queensland in 2015. This is our second visit to Burralea and we are back with the Drummond family this time we get to know Flora and we discover Joe and Hattie who are re-united after the discovery of bones on a property that is owned now by Flora’s brother Seth. I didn’t want to put this one down so make yourself comfortable and enjoy.

Flora is back home after leaving an abusive partner she is a gifted violinist and is practising for a new position she is staying in town and lying low so to speak but when she is asked to play in a quartet for a very good friend’s wedding she is happy to help but this wedding doesn’t go to plan and this is not the first time that this beautiful little church has seen a betrayal of love and Flora is feeling the grooms heartache you see she has had a crush on Mitch Cavello since she was a young girl and Mitch came to stay on the property she grew up on, so here starts a journey that brings a lot of drama into Flora’s life.

Hattie Bellamy spent her younger years in Shanghai with her very English family exploring the markets and lots of other exciting things but with the war getting closer and fear takes over her widowed mother Rose brings Hattie to Australia to be safe and there she meets Joe Matthews they spend a lot of time growing up on Joe’s parents property Kooringal they fall in love and plan to marry but plans get turned around and Joe marries someone else in the little church in Burralea. Hattie loses her mother Rose and a secret is uncovered and moves to England and gets on with her life but many years later she moves to Brisbane and then the discovery of bones on Kooringal bring her back to Burralea and back to Joe.

There are four people who have a lot to go through to get to their HEA’s and their stories are so moving, emotional and just so captivating this was a book I was really looking forward to after reading The Grazier’s Wife and wow it really is a beauty of a story one that I can highly recommend, I don’t want to give too much away and I hope that I have done this one justice because it is another keeper, one not to be missed thank you MS Hannay you bought me to tears, you made me smile and it will be a while before I stop thinking about Flora, Mitch, Hattie and Joe and the cast of wonderful characters that made this story so very enjoyable. Don’t miss this one.

As Hattie watched from a distance, she knew Joe had seen her. His sad and sombre expression mirrored her own heartbreak as she watched the man she knew she’d love forever, marry another…

Many years later Flora Drummond had fled Melbourne to the Atherton Tablelands of Queensland, to the little town of Burralea where she hoped to be able to lie low for a time. Flora’s brother Seth lived in the area with his girlfriend Alice; Seth had recently purchased a property and he had exciting plans for the future. Flora was a violinist and after having to leave her position in the orchestra in Melbourne, hoped to gain a position in Brisbane’s symphony orchestra.

Mitch was Burralea’s small town policeman and his wedding day was fast approaching when he asked Flora if she would be the fourth in the quartet at his wedding. But when Mitch’s bride didn’t show, his humiliation and anger was great. But in a matter of days, Mitch was notified of a strange, sinister find out on Seth’s new property; he was glad to get back to the job – at least he could stop dwelling on his non-wedding…

The Country Wedding by Aussie author Barbara Hannay is an exceptional story of love lost, second chances and how circumstances can affect people way into the future. A story laced with mystery, intrigue and heartache, The Country Wedding is set in far north Queensland and spans generations across the continents. Told in two timelines – past and current day – it captured my imagination and held me enthralled until the very end. Once again, this author has nailed it! Highly recommended.
