When Ivy steps over the cattle grid, reality hits. Capricorn Station is vast, desolate and Central to Nowhere. But Ivy has come too far to back out now. She’s left her past behind her and is desperate to make this work.
Stockman Adam O’Rourke is equally determined she’s going home ASAP. This girl is not the jillaroo he was expecting to help on his station over the summer. She can’t even handle a horse.
It isn’t long before Ivy realises there’s more between her and Adam than the job. But Ivy has only one summer on Capricorn Station. One season that’s passing way too fast.
And when Adam’s past blows in unexpectedly, Ivy realises too late that falling for him is bringing back everything she is running from.
If you want A light and fun read then this is the book for you.
I enjoyed the book from the start and I have learned a few things along the way.
This author has thrown in a little bit of everything like I said later and it's done in such a way that it makes for a great read!!
I loved the Aussie lingo that is thrown in too. It gave a feel for what their language might actually be like. To me, it almost sounds British.
Ivy is my girl. She's brave and wants to fit in somewhere and she thinks that the ranch may be for her. She is running away from her past which is something that we can never do because it follows us whatever we go unless something is done about it. You can run but not hide for God knows and He sees.
Adam is the same.
Adam gets the shock of his life when Ivy shows up. He wasn't expecting a woman much less not knowing a thing about the requirements of ranch life.
There some scenes where I couldn't help myself and laughed out loud and some where I just shook my head and others well, I just wanted to knock their heads together and see which one would get up first!
I believe trust is the theme here. You have to learn to trust people but that's really hard to do sometimes. I should know. But the one thing I do know is that I can trust my Jesus.
He'll never do me wrong like people can.
Adam has trust issues.
I give this book 5 stars just because I went to Australia and didn't want to come back to the present and deal with just life.
This book was an excellent road to recovery from being sick and in the hospital for almost a month because of Cellulitis.
Thank you D.j.
My thanks to the author for a copy of this book. No compensations were received. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I've milked cows. I've kept bees and made cheese. I bartered my Gouda for wine at a boutique vineyard near our home in The Hunter Valley, New South Wales.
A short stint with horses saw me falling off and breaking my best arm. It gave me second thoughts on animals of the equine persuasion.
Being mother to five is perhaps my greatest achievement, but writing comes a close second. After all, we two have been friends for such a long time.
