Riassunto: Damien McAllister is a man on the brink. Spending long, hard days on a farm he has no affection for, and nights ignoring the criticisms of his mother, Damien can no longer remember what he's living for. But in a small town like Wattle Creek, there are few people to turn to and Damien learned long ago to keep his problems to himself. Until Jacqueline Havelock, a young psychologist escaping her own issues, arrives fresh from the city and makes Damien question everything he has known about himself, also igniting a spark in his lonely heart. Soon Damien is daring to ask for more than an ordinary life, and can glimpse the possibility of happiness. Will this accidental farmer dare to fulfill the long-forgotten legacy of his father and find peace in the arms of the doctor? Or will the ghosts of their pasts threaten the fragile new lives they've just begun to build?
L'autore: For Fiona McCallum, the saying 'You can take the girl out of the country, but not the country out of the girl' is very apt. Fiona spent her childhood years on the family cereal and wool farm outside the small town of Cleve on South Australia's Eyre Peninsula. When she married a farmer in her early-twenties, Fiona was driving tractors, mustering sheep, helping out in the shearing sheds and preparing meals for shearers. But when their relationship ended, Fiona moved to inner-Melbourne, then Sydney, where she found herself living an altogether different lifestyle. Having had a love of writing for as long as she can remember, Fiona began to seriously indulge her passion whilst running a business, renovating an old cottage, and supporting a high-flying partner. She finished writing her first manuscript in early 2001. In 2004 Fiona left her Sydney partner and re-established herself in Adelaide in order to have a more balanced lifestyle and focus on her creative writing. In 2010 Fiona signed her first publishing contract after writing four manuscripts and spending nine years being rejected by agents and publishers. Fiona's heart-warming journey of self-discovery stories set in rural South Australia are striking a chord with readers. She is now the author of five Australian bestsellers - Paycheque, Nowhere Else, Wattle Creek, Saving Grace, and Time Will Tell - and living her dream of being a full-time novelist.
