' . . . when it all goes wrong, where is there left to run to but home?'

Kate Gilmore hasn't been home in years, but since she lost her job and her marriage, she doesn't have anywhere else to turn. Seeking comfort in the country she still carries in her heart, she heads back to the family farm in South Australia's Mallee country, even though it's a place filled with dark and disturbing memories.

She is offered a job on neighbouring Rosebud Farm, where she meets the colourful old Harry Quickly and an intriguing young boy called Maxie. And then there's the handsome harvest contractor, who's not shy about making his intentions known.

When one catastrophe leads to another, Kate is confronted with a devastating secret from her past. The revelation gives her power to transform the lives of those she loves. If she can sort out who to trust and who is a threat to her, she might just find a way to rescue them all. ' (Publisher's blurb)
