The true story of an unlikely romance in the Australian outback.
At forty-nine, Deb Hunt stopped dating men. It was just too painful. The men she loved didn't love her back. When she found herself stalking her last boyfriend, who'd become engaged to another woman, Deb knew it was time to make changes.
From her home in the UK, she applied for a job in Australia - a PR assistant with the Royal Flying Doctor Service. She packed up her London home, said goodbye to everything that was familiar, and headed down under. There she encountered a land she never imagined and met a man unlike any other - a Royal Flying Doctor Service legend. He was a deeply practical, reasonable, steady, conservative person - in other words, the polar opposite of Deb. He wanted a relationship. She wanted to flee.
This is the story of what happens when you finally ditch your life-long dreams of romance, only to discover that reality is not such a bad place after all.

I purchased this book a while ago and realized I didn't write a review.
I enjoyed this book and the courage that Deb Hunt had to leave a comfortable life in London to take a job in the Outback as PR assistant to the Flying Doctor Service. An interesting and enjoyable book.
