This gutsy and romantic rural adventure is a gripping and moving story of one young woman's journey towards independence, self-determination and true love.
After a terrible argument with her father over their family property, 'Waters Meet', Rebecca Saunders throws her swag in the ute and heads north. A job as a jillaroo takes her into the rowdy world of B&S balls, Bundy rum and boys. When she at last settles down to study at agricultural college, her life is turned upside down by the very handsome but very drunken party animal Charlie Lewis.
Will she settle for life of wheat farming on vast open plains, together with Charlie? Or will she return to the mountains, to fight for the land and the river that runs through her soul?
It's only when tragedy shatters her world that Rebecca finds a strength and courage she never knew she had, in this action-packed novel of adventure, dreams and determination.
