The Deniliquin Ute Muster had always been on Rebecca's wish list, but with the farm and babies, she'd never managed to make it. Tonight, she decided to reclaim herself.

After ten years being married to larrikin Charlie Lewis and living on her beloved property, Waters Meeting, Rebecca is confronted by a wife's biggest fear, a mother's worst nightmare and a farm business that's bleeding to death.

Can Rebecca find the inner strength she once had as a young jillaroo, to save everything she cherishes? Or is life about to teach her the hardest lesson: that sometimes you simply have to let go.

This uplifting and insightful tale deals with the truth about love that the Cinderella stories never tell us. Rebecca's journey is everywoman's journey, and a resonant tale for our times.

Comments about The Farmer's Wife:

This is a heartwarming continuation of Rebecca lewis's complicated life,that sadly some people of the land will associate with. But Rebecca shows such strength and determination within the pages I also hope it will be an inspiration to many.Rachael's farming knowledge,compassion for the land and animals flows throughtout this book. She shows us, to accept a helping hand when held out as you never know where it will take you. Her book takes us again on a journey of love & hate heartache & adventure, wit, hope & learning. Leaving you dying to know what the future holds.
