Product Description

Long Way Back.
Jodie explained her dilemma "My parents own a cattle and sheep station out Orange way towards Hill End. When I finished high school I came here to Forbes. I found a job with Ag and Vet doing their accounts and books. It's because my dad is not very well. War injuries. I wanted to go to Ag College and take over the running of the farm. But he hit the roof when I suggested it and said he wasn't going to let a woman run his station. He said I would be less than useless at it. But, for heavens sakes, from when I was young I worked with the station hands. I mustered cattle and worked in the stock yards. Helped with haymaking, fencing; the lot. Anyway we had a terrible row. Mum tried to make him see sense. But he wouldn't consider it so I packed my things and left."
"I don't know how my father is going to manage the farm with his bad limp and busted shoulder or how he is going to do the work on his own, on the farm."
Jenny sat forward and said, "What you have explained to me, I think he has PTSD. That would explain a lot. Before he went to Vietnam you said he was a lovable and lovely man, but he came back with injuries and a lot of anger. Is that correct?"
"Yes. That is correct, but what is this PTSD you spoke about?"
"Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Many war veterans returned with trauma due to the terrible things they experienced. Many have nightmares and terrible flash backs."
Jodie then mentioned, "He does have regular nightmares. So what can be done to help him?"
The story goes on to where Jodie makes a wonderful life for herself on the land and finds the love of her life. But on the way there are quite a few twists and turns and surprises.
