A sweeping love story and family saga from the bestselling author of Heart of the Outback and This Time Forever. When English actress Vanessa Forsythe falls in love with Ben Selby, her life changes forever. Leaving behind her beautiful Belgravia apartment, she becomes mistress of Amaroo Downs, a remote cattle station in the Northern Territory. Not only does Vanessa have to adjust to the outback lifestyle, but she has to make her place in the Selby family. Ben's brother, Curtis, isn't too pleased to have to make allowances for the English blow-in, while his mother, Hilary, finds it difficult to let go of her hold on Amaroo, even though she no longer lives on the station. However, Vanessa's real challenge comes when a family secret threatens to overturn life on Amaroo, and someone seems determined to bring her happiness there to an end.
