From the rugged beauty of the Adelaide Hills comes a story of loss, hope and new beginnings

Claire McIntyre has it all: an adoring husband, a bubbly best friend, a chic townhouse and a high-flying corporate career in the city. But somehow she’s forgotten what really makes her happy.

After receiving tragic news, closely followed by the loss of her job, Claire’s world is thrown into turmoil. She is then forced to reconsider everything that matters to her.

Claire soon finds herself back at the very place she’s been running from the family property. A place where the bush telegraph exposes every secret, where reputations are hard won and easily lost, and where fortune is as fickle as the weather.

Here, in the rugged beauty of the Australian Adelaide Hills, Claire starts to rebuild her life with her friends, her father and his beloved racehorses including a promising young horse called Paycheque.

But just as she begins to find happiness, and perhaps even love, fate comes to call. Now Claire must decide whether to do the sensible thing, or risk it all on her newfound passion

Fiona McCallum

Fiona McCallum spent her childhood years on the family cereal and wool farm outside a small town on South Australia’s Eyre Peninsula. An avid reader and writer, she decided at the age of nine that she wanted to be the next Enid Blyton! She completed her final years of schooling at a private boarding school in Adelaide.

Fiona maintained her literary interests by writing poetry and short stories, and studying at TAFE via correspondence. Her ability to put into words her observations of country life saw a number of her feature articles published in the now defunct newspaper SA Statewide. Fiona continued to develop her creative writing skills by reading widely and voraciously, and attending short courses. In 2001 she realised her true passion lay in writing full-length fiction, and in 2002 completed her first manuscript.

Fiona writes "heart-warming journey of self-discovery stories". Her first novel Paycheque was released in April 2011 and became an 'instant bestseller'. Her second novel Nowhere Else (released Dec 2011) was an even bigger hit, outselling Paycheque by early January 2012. Fiona's third novel, Wattle Creek , was released April 1 2012. Wattle Creek 's success has seen it chosen as one of the Get Reading! "50 Books You Can't Put Down" for 2012.

Saving Grace is Fiona's fourth novel (out April 2013), and is the first in her The Button Jar series.
