When marketing executive Tessa Mathison leaves London to attend her great-aunt's funeral in Australia, her life is in turmoil.

An indiscretion during a boozy night out has resulted in Tessa's name being mud in London's cliquey marketing scene, and soon after she arrives in her homeland she discovers she's been sacked.

Tessa's childhood home, Danjar Plains, is an isolated station which holds some bad memories for her. She plans to escape it as soon as the funeral is over, but then an unusual request in her Aunt Violet's will makes it impossible for her to leave.

When charismatic and charming Brendan McKensie introduces himself to Tessa, staying at Danjar Plains no longer seems such a hardship. As various secrets begin to unravel, Tessa realises letting go of her heart may hold the key to unlocking both her past and her future.

From the author of the bestselling outback sagas, Red Dust, Blue Skies and Purple Roads, this moving novel is about making peace with the past, overcoming fear and insecurity, and the healing power of love.

      I am reading all of Fleur McDonald's books whilst recovering from 2 spinal surgeries. Her characters are engaging and she gives plenty of insight to outback Australian life. Well worth reading.

              Comments about Silver Clouds:

              Silver Clouds is primarily about Tessa's journey to make peace with her past. She never dealt properly with the tragic death of her best friend and in her desperation to outrun her guilt and pain she has made choices she is not proud of. On returning home, she is forced to confront her demons and reevaluate what and who she truly wants.
              Silver Clouds is an easy, engaging read which combines intrigue, drama and romance in a vivid Australian setting. Fleur McDonald's fans are sure to enjoy this, her fourth rural fiction offering.
