Currawong Creek




A heartfelt and passionate rural romance from the author of Brumby's Run.

Brisbane lawyer Clare Mitchell leads an orderly life. That is, until she finds herself the unlikely guardian of a troubled boy. In desperation, Clare takes Jack to stay at Currawong Creek, her grandfather's horse stud in the foothills of the beautiful Bunya Mountains.

For Clare it feels like coming home. Her grandad adores having them there, Jack loves the animals, and Clare finds herself falling hard for the handsome local vet.

But trouble is coming. The Pyramid Mining Company threatens to destroy the land Clare loves – and with it, her newfound happiness.
