About the Author
When USA Today bestselling author Alissa Callen isn't writing, she plays traffic controller to four children, three dogs, two horses and one renegade cow who believes the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. After a childhood spent chasing sheep on the family farm, Alissa has always been drawn to remote areas and small towns, even when residing overseas. She is partial to autumn colours, snowy peaks and historic homesteads and will drive hours to see an open garden. Once a teacher and a counsellor, she remains interested in the life journeys that people take. She draws inspiration from the countryside around her, whether it be the brown snake at her back door or the resilience of bush communities in times of drought or flood. Her books are characteristically heartwarming, authentic and character driven. Alissa lives on a small slice of rural Australia in central western NSW.

At the heart of the story is the romance between Neve and Tanner, but there is another thread which enables Neve to learn about her grandmother’s first husband. I liked every single character in this story though Neve and Tanner stood out. It was fabulous seeing how two little girls, a donkey and some ponies helped them to find each other and heal their own old wounds.
Set in the fictitious NSW country town of Woodley, the story flows along gently as country life continues around the main characters. There is a group of secret knitters yarn bombing the town, a rodeo, picnic races and more. Out of town wheat fields are being sown, and there’s the threat of locusts. It’s very clear that author Alissa Callen knows this part of the world and immerses herself in country life. She has mastered the art of linking her story to its surrounds as epitomised in sentences like this one: “His temples hammered and his mouth was as dry as a billabong in a summer drought.”
The story has plenty in it to keep readers interested until the end. I found myself reading into the wee hours and only putting the book away when I couldn’t keep my eyes open. I think this is one of Alissa Callen’s best books to date. Loved it!`
