'It has been fourteen years since the end of the Great War, and Grace doesn’t think she will ever get over losing the love of her life. She is a committed spinster aunt, despite her mother’s attempts to introduce her to eligible bachelors. When a stranger comes to town looking for work, her mother is immediately alert to possibilities. Grace admits he is handsome, but their first encounter was enough to put her off him for life.

'Alex has been on the road with his three children for nearly two years, looking for work where he could find it. Times are tough and work hard to come by. Charlie Shore gave him hope he would find something long term — as long as it doesn’t involve Charlie’s sister, another opportunistic spinster looking for a man. He’s not going to fall for it.

'Things change when circumstances throw Alex and Grace together to survive.

'But Alex has a secret that could destroy them all. And now Grace has a secret—one that won’t stay hidden.

'This new title is part of the very popular 'Heart of Green Valley' series. Australian, New Zealand and British readers connected well with the author's characters, setting and stories. Though part of a series, this book and all books in the series read as stand-alone novels.' (Publication summary)

'After three years, Chris is returning home because of a bushfire crisis threatening his family farm. The danger level is extreme both to himself and the property, almost as extreme as the danger that his heart will be broken all over again. Sally hasn't seen Chris in three years, and she hasn't forgiven him for just disappearing with no explanation. But he chooses today – the day when their neighbouring properties are in the path of a raging bushfire – to return. She wants to demand an explanation, but with the smoke and flames bearing down on them, now is the time for defending their homes and stock – and each other.'
