AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Dr. Cassandra Clarke is a survivor. Born in Australia, brought up in the United States, she fought her way through medical school -- an exclusively male domain. Now, an ill-fated love affair drives the respected physician back to her native land, to take part in one of humankind's most noble and daring experiments: The Australian Flying Doctor Service. In THE BACK OF BEYOND, Dr. Cassandra Clarke, is the first woman doctor in the AFDS. Cassandra carves out an uncertain future, risking her own life to fly to remote sheep stations to perform heroic, life-saving operations. And as her courage as a healer is tested, her heart is challenged by the passionate demands of three men -- a pilot, a doctor, and a rancher -- who will change her world forever. Set against the sweeping panorama of Australia's great wilderness -- a harsh, beautiful land of kangaroos, wild aborigines and daring immigrants who've come in search of a better future -- THE BACK OF BEYOND tells the intimate story of a woman who journeys from tragedy to triumph, from loss to breathtaking love ... as she confronts the choices every woman must make at least once in her life.
