An Australian Outback Romance

When Cindie Davenport is stranded in the outback she must learn whom she can trust with her secret, and who has secrets of their own.

From the bestselling author of Australian outback romance. Over 12 million books sold worldwide.

Cindie is on her way to Bindaroo, but she doesn't want anyone to know she is coming. Her mother inherited shares in the remote sheep station, but it seems to be failing. Is this true, or is Cindie's mother being cheated out of her profits?

After years of drought, the river suddenly comes down and cuts Cindie off. She is rescued by Nick Brent, the site engineer at a nearby highway construction camp. Cindie has no choice but to stay at the camp until the water recedes.

Fortunately, Cindie is in radio contact with Jim Vernon, the overseer at Baanya Station, one hundred and fifty miles away. But is there more than a friendship developing over the airwaves? And will Jim be there for Cindie when she needs him most?

Meanwhile, Cindie has her suspicions about Nick, and his glamorous companion Erica Alexander. Could they be behind the mystery of what is happening to her mother's inheritance?

Lucy Walker's gentle, clean romances give readers a fascinating insight into the landscape, people and customs of the Western Australian outback in the mid-twentieth century.
