    I have only just started to read Rachael’s books & the first 2 I read I loved on Hope Junction. I have just started to read Man drought & recently got all the Outback series to read – can’t wait.
    Good luck Racael You are certainly a good author & I am a massive fan.

    Rachael writes the kind of books you don’t want to put down, and are sad when they end!
