From the bestselling author of Mallawindy and Jacaranda Blue comes a moving story about being set free.
Sally De Rooze is almost thirty. She survived the accident that killed her father and brothers. Her mother never forgave her for that. But she survived her mother too. Surviving is what she does best.
Farmer Ross Bertram, who offers her his acres and safety, is the answer for a while. Until he starts pushing for a wedding. Sally wants ... wants more. Wants to know great love. Wants to find herself. One year. That's what she wants. One year of freedom in the big, bad city.
Her survival skills are tested in the urban sprawl and she discovers more about herself than she had ever dared to imagined.
