From the author of Brumby's Run, Currawong Creek and Turtle Reef comes an evocative story of love and loyalty, set in the heart of Australia's riverlands.

For Nina Moore, the rare marshland flanking the beautiful Bunyip River is the most precious place on earth. Her dream is to buy Billabong Bend and protect it forever, but she's not the only one with designs on the land. When her childhood sweetheart Ric returns home, old feelings are rekindled, and Nina dares to dream of a future for both of them on the river. But a tragic death divides loyalties and threatens to tear apart their fledgling relationship.

This star-crossed rural romance sets Nina and Ric on a heart-rending collision course, amid the beauty of northern New South Wales.
