'Julia Heath is experiencing a tree-change nightmare; a dismal country town with no decent coffee, a yoga teacher husband who ishaving an affair with the butcher's wife and slowly sending them bankrupt, a mother-in-law coming to stay and a son obsessed with flies. But she soon falls under the spell of Tom, a handsome, but troubled, dairy farmer who experiences the world through extraordinary eyes. As Julia and her husband become involved with Tom, their lives and marriage are inexorably changed and Julia is forced to heal the wounds of her past and abandon all ideas of the perfect family.
Milk Fever is an uncommon romance. It explores the journey of healing we undertake through our relationships; past and present. And how, despite our flaws, and our desire to remain separate, we are all incredibly precious, connected and, ultimately, necessary to each other.' (From the publisher's website.)
