A heartwarming family drama by the bestselling author of The Tea Chest and The Cake Maker's Wish
Award-winning jam maker Aggie is determined to take her Barossa Valley cafe to new heights. She has put the pain of unsuccessful IVF treatments and a broken relationship behind her, and is focused on the many wonderful possibilities life still holds in store.
When an invitation to travel across Australia on the Ghan for her mother's seventieth birthday comes her way, she is at first apprehensive. But the trip offers a precious opportunity to spend some quality time with the other women in her family - all four generations of them.
As the iconic train chugs its way beneath majestic desert skies, she becomes distracted by the attentions of a handsome younger man on his own search for meaning. When long-held family rifts reignite, Aggie must learn the true meaning of love, and about sticking together through even life's trickiest situations.
