The Outback Heart




The most heartfelt and moving novel yet from favourite Australian rural romance writer and bestselling author.

The most heartfelt and moving novel yet from favourite Australian rural romance writer and bestselling author.

Country girl Indianna Wilson will do anything she can to save her beloved home town from disappearing off the map – even if she has to die trying. She entices Troy Mitchell to Hyden, with hopes that he can bring a breath of fresh air to the Saints football club and lift the wider farming community.

He's just the spark they need, but it's the fire that he ignites in Indi's heart that takes her by surprise. She knows he's feeling something too – why, then, does he insist on pushing her away? What is it from his dark past that's preventing them from sharing a future?

As the town rallies together and their fighting spirit returns, Indi and Troy discover that sometimes life offers up a second chance – you just have to be brave enough to take it.

'A moving and engaging story, told with warmth and humour.' Book'd Out

'Palmer's characterisation of the town's many colourful identities is delightful and will bring a smile to those who have experienced country life . . . With holiday season approaching, total immersion in The Outback Heart could just be the plan.' West Australian
