Central to Nowhere


When Ivy steps over the cattle grid, reality hits. Capricorn Station is vast, desolate and Central to Nowhere. But Ivy has come too far to back out. She’s left her past behind her and is desperate to forget it. 

           City girl Ivy is not the jillaroo that stockman Adam O’Rourke was expecting to help on his station over the summer. She can’t even ride a horse. Adam has every right to expect that she can.      

          Ivy’s dream of riding the stock route is based on nothing more than wishful thinking. And falling headlong into red dust and boots isn’t the kind of introduction to Capricorn Station that Ivy had in mind. But with a fair amount of gumption—and one white lie aside—Ivy’s determined to show Adam that she’s got what it takes.    

It is 1822. The colony bells of Newcastle chime for a wedding but Emma Colchester is uneasy. Her cousin is nowhere to be found. Fingers of blame are pointed too close to home and Emma's future with Tobias threatens to unravel. The walls of a homestead standing by The Hunter River hold the clue, and Emma risks everything in finding out the truth.
