AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A year after a tragic accident changed her life forever, Tess Daley is in desperate need of a change. When she is offered a position as a breast care nurse with the Flying Doctor Service, she seizes the opportunity to make a fresh start far away from home. Yet once she arrives in Mica Ridge she feels like an outsider, unable to connect with her patients and unsure if she'll ever fit in with this outback community.

'Soretta Byrnes has grown to love the company and chaos that comes with living in a house filled with women since opening her station's homestead to boarders. So with tenants moving out and bills piling up, it's a welcome relief to have Tess and new pilot Charlie Fennes arriving in town and looking for somewhere to stay.

'As they share life's triumphs and challenges, it isn't long before everyone at Blue Hills feels like family. But Charlie has yet to reveal his motive for coming to Blue Hills and his secret could destroy the harmony of the house forever. When disaster strikes, emotions are put to the test and only the friendship and support of this unlikely group will enable anyone to make it through unscathed.' (Publication summary)
