This book was described as 'chick lit'...and to a degree it was. Female lead roles. However, I enjoyed listening to this story and could relate to much of it after spending fifty years on a farm. It's not all about farming and at some points I was thinking 'we could skip that' but was enjoyable. I will look out for more of Rachel Treeasure's books. A three and a half star (for the rural setting) read. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

After a terrible argument with her father over their family property, Rebecca throws her kit into the back of her ute and heads north with her sheepdogs. A job as a trainee farmhand takes her into the rowdy world of country dances, Bundy rum and boys. When she at last settles down to a bit of study at agricultural college, her life is turned upside down by the very handsome, but very drunken party animal, Charlie Lewis. Will she choose a life of wheat farming on vast open plains with Charlie? Or will she return to the mountains to fight for the land and the river that runs through her soul? It's only when tragedy shatters her world that Rebecca finds a strength and courage she never knew she had.--Cover.… (more)
