Rosie O’Shea dreams of seeing the world. But right now, the Outback hotel she inherited from her husband is falling down around her ears, her bank account is empty and family duty means she’s staying put.

The only thing keeping Stephanie Bailey sane are the rides she takes on their sprawling property, even if the earth is red and barren as far as her eye can see. Drought has forced the sale of almost all their cattle and her husband is getting more and more distant. The last thing she needs is the complications her brother-in-law brings.

Sydney girl Faith Montgomery is single, out of work and at the age of 31 has just discovered she is adopted. Furious at being lied to for her entire life, she lands a job at the Crossroads Hotel so she can track down her biological mother without revealing who she is. When Cameron Bailey walks into the bar his curious blend of country charm and city savvy has her falling hard.

A story of deceit, betrayal and love that proves that in the end you can choose your family.

About Pamela Cook

I’m a city girl with a country lifestyle – and too many horses! My rural fiction novels feature feisty women, tangled family relationships and a healthy dose of romance.

In my past life, I was a secondary school English teacher. Wanting to try my hand at something more creative I enrolled in a Masters degree in creative writing, became hooked and was soon writing fiction, poetry and memoir.

After spending five years on a literary style novel (which remains in the bottom drawer) I dived into Nanwrimo  (National Novel Writing Month) in November 2009 and churned out a 50,000 word novel in a month. A year later the protagonist of that book, Eve Nicholls, was still tapping on my shoulder wanting her story to be finished. The next version of the manuscript was accepted in the 2011 Development Program. After further revision I submitted the manuscript again and was elated to receive a phone call from Hachette with an offer of publication.

I write Rural Fiction (with romantic elements) and am proud to be a Writer Ambassador for Room To Read, a not-for-profit organisation that promotes literacy and gender equality in developing countries.

When I’m not writing I waste as much time as possible riding my handsome quarter horses, Morocco and Rio, trying to get through my reading pile and attempting to perfect my yoga poses.
