'A ripping good read...Maya's deep understanding of living in country Australia and down-to-earth good humour gives her story great authenticity...We can't wait for the next book to find out what happens to another member of the McIntyre sisterhood.' - Australian Country on Bottlebrush Creek
Lara McIntyre and journalist Toby Paxton are thrust into the limelight when an accident puts the beating heart of their community in jeopardy.
The small country town of Bridgefield can't manage without their general store and post office, but Lara can't stomach the idea of out-of-town buyers running it into the ground either.
With the help of the close-knit community, they rally together to save the general store. Featuring a black tie ball, a fun run, a magpie called Vegemite and a snake-chasing kelpie called Basil, Magpie's Bend is a story about the rural lives, family, love and letting go.
