The Round Yard

A heartfelt story about finding where you belong.

For only child Neve Fitzpatrick, family is everything. When she loses her mother, she heads to the bush to rent a farmhouse near her grandmother’s family home. To keep herself busy and her grief at bay, she offers to look after two little redheaded cowgirls and adopts a sassy pony and sweet donkey in need of a refuge.

Drover and horse trainer Tanner Callahan may have just found his mother, but he’s resolved never to let anyone too close. Abandonment has cursed him all his life, and he won’t let it happen again. Only two things unnerve him: children and small-town matchmaking. Then he meets occupational therapist Neve. Warm-hearted and unforgettable, she represents all that Tanner feels will forever remain out of reach.

But when an old iron key unlocks family secrets from the Second World War, Neve needs help only Tanner can give. As the threads of the past unravel, and locusts threaten to suffocate the land, Neve and Tanner must make a choice. Will fear keep them running or is the home each yearns for already within grasp?

Bonus novella – The Purple Hills

The answer could be written in the stars… 

Sibylla Elliott’s return to small-town Woodlea will only be temporary. The audiologist will reassure herself that her father is doing well after his stroke and then be gone before her stepmother can wedge herself any further between them.

Single-dad Hugh Mason’s entire world is his freckle-faced, space-obsessed son, Riley. When Hugh suffers a head injury, he has no Plan B, until Riley and his miniature pony come to his rescue, fetching their neighbour Sibylla. Glad to escape the tension in her family home, she moves to the next-door farm to help out the local horse chiropractor.

But when close quarters magnify the attraction between Sibylla and Hughand refreshes past heartbreak, there is a price to pay. Will the wish of a motherless five-year-old as he stares at the night sky be enough to make Sibylla’s plans permanent?
