They got married and lived happily ever after... or did they? The Farmer's Wife is the much anticipated sequel to groundbreaking novel JILLAROO from Australia's number one rural fiction author, Rachael Treasure. This inspirational and, at times, heart wrenching story revisits one of the most refreshing Australian heroines, Rebecca Saunders on her beloved property Waters Meeting.

After marrying her party boy, Charlie Lewis, Rebecca finds herself lost in marriage, motherhood and a farm that fails to function.

A Tupperware party with a twist sets the wheels in motion for Rebecca's path to falter forever. Can she heal her troubled relationship with Charlie and convince him to run the farm in a better way? Or will life take her down another track altogether with the impossibly young track rider Joey, the handsome and wealthy Sol Stanton or the inspiring environmentalist and cattle farmer Andrew Travis? A beautiful and moving tale of self-discovery, The Farmer's Wife deals with the truth about relationships that the Cinderella stories never tell us.

About the Author

Rachael Treasure lives on a sheep farm in Tasmania with her husband, John, and her children, Rosie and Charlie. Together they breed and train kelpies, border collies and waler stockhorses.

Rachael has an exciting, ever-changing website featuring stories from her life on the farm and working-dog training information.

Good sequel to Jillaroo, very enjoyable. Didn't end where I thought it would, and I wished it went on a bit longer.

            I have given it to a friend to read, I haven't read any of her other books, but really enjoyed this one. I'll look for her other titles now.
            I couldn't put it down, had to finish and see what happened.

                This book was very disappointing - not what I expected from Rachel Treasure. I think that she has lost the plot. I would not be interested in buying anymore of her books.
