A footloose city slicker who couldn't tell a bull from a cow was hardly the ideal candidate to answer an ad for a governess on a Mackay cattle station. But Alice Greenup was game for anything, until she was bowled over by a handsome young jackeroo with a devastating smile.
Alice gave up her city life to embrace the bush and all that came with it: horses, cattle, the obsession with rain ? and the correct way to wear a hat. Determined to make their own future, they gambled their dreams on a vast property called 'Jumma'. It was a huge risk but they were on their way.
But one morning they almost lost it all. And what followed would test their love to the limit ...
