A rural romance set in the colourful world of the shearing sheds, this is a lively and uniquely Australian story of love overcoming adversity.

CJ Wishart is a hardworking country girl with a heart of gold but a life that can be tough.  Her job as a wool classer is back-breaking, her family life is a disaster and, after a string of dating debacles, she's put men in the too-hard basket.

When strong, handsome Lindsay arrives on the scene as their new shearer, CJ can't help but take notice.  They have an undeniable spark, but can she handle the complications and potential heartbreak of falling in love?

Set in the colourful world of the shearing sheds, this is a lively and uniquely Australian story of love overcoming adversity.

'A rollicking romance that will have readers cheering on the heroine . . . Evokes the light, people, atmosphere and attitudes of a small country town.'
