An intoxicating outback romance - set in Victoria and Queensland - that is bursting with love for life on the land.

An intoxicating outback romance - set in Victoria and Queensland - that is bursting with love for life on the land.

Bella Vermaelon and her best friend Patty are two fun-loving country girls bonded in a sisterhood no blood tie could ever beat.

Now they are coming to the end of a road trip which has taken them from their family farms in the rugged Victorian high country to the red dust of the Queensland outback. For almost a year they have mustered on cattle stations, cooked for weary stockmen, played hard at rodeos and outback parties, and danced through life like a pair of wild tumbleweeds.

And with the arrival of Patty's brother Will and Bella's cousin Macca, it seems love is on the horizon too ...

Then a devastating tragedy strikes, and Bella's world is changed for ever.

So she runs - from the only life she has ever known. But can she really turn her back on the man she loves? Or on the land that runs deep in her blood?

Bella's Run bursts with energy and vitality. I loved every word. You'll want to grab a hat and boots and join Bella once you've finished.

An outback story of life, friendships and undeniable love. A great read.
