Product description

Product Description

It's Christmas in the outback town of Dungirri, and Angie Butler has returned to her old home, perhaps for the last time. Her life is elsewhere, and the ties that have for decades bound her family to the struggling town and its old hotel may soon be broken.

But the arrival of two strangers in town – Owen Caldwell and his grandfather – along with the hot, dry, north wind herald a time of challenge and unexpected change.

Owen has no idea why his grandfather has quietly insisted on this Christmas visit to Dungirri, a town he's never been to. But the old doctor has a final quest, and as long-held secrets come to light and Owen and Angie use their skills to assist those in need, they both must decide where they belong, and where their future is.

Loved it! What a perfect way to wrap up a the Dungirri novels - with all the characters we've loved coming together one last time. A joyful story that has the same page-turning qualities of a Bronwyn Parry novel. Bronwyn's novels (the way she weaves her stories, the structure, and POV) have been an inspiration to me from the very first book and I was determined to, one day, be as good a writer and as prolific. Not sure I am there yet, but 4 books in, she is still influencing me. Yes, it's short (119 pages) but the author packs a whole lot of plot in those pages. I cried! In a short story! That's how well Bronwyn develops her characters and makes us fall in love with them - warts and all. Maybe the Christmas theme contributed to the water works. (But don't wait until Christmas to read a Christmas novella.) And just because it's a Dungirri novel does not mean you have to read the other books in the series first. While all set in the same town, the setting is the only links. The books are standalone romantic suspense novels that can be read in any order.

A well thought out short story with a good "Australiana" feel. Enjoyable reading, the ending fell a little flat & incomplete.

Bronwyn Parry always delivers a great read with realistic characters and lots of action. This was a more gentle story but still had all the fabulous Parry traits. I love how Dungirri seems to be slowly rebuilding and finding new ways to be a working small town.
