What really happens when a city girl becomes a farmer's wife? If you're a fan of Rachael Treasure, you'll love this memoir: a real-life outback love story that proves truth is even better than fiction ... A footloose city slicker who couldn't tell a bull from a cow was hardly the ideal candidate to answer an ad for a governess on a Mackay cattle station. But Alice Greenup was game for anything, until she was bowled over by a handsome young jackeroo with a devastating smile. It was the start of a whole new way of life as Alice gave up her city life to embrace the bush and all that came with it: horses, cattle, the obsession with rain - and the correct way to wear a hat. After overcoming more than a few obstacles, the unlikely couple eventually married, moving to Rick's family farm near Kingaroy. Determined to make their own future, they gambled their dreams on a vast property called 'Jumma'. It was a huge risk but with a lot of love, blood, sweat and tears, they were on their way. But one morning they almost lost it all. When Alice's horse bucked her out of the saddle in remote bushland, she was gravely injured. Rick was forced to leave her lying alone, drifting in and out of consciousness, to gallop home for help. What followed would test their love to the limit ...

About the Author

When Alice Greenup left Melbourne on the back of a motorbike to explore Australia, she couldn’t tell a cow from a bull. But she had to learn fast after talking her way into a job as a governess on an outback property and falling hard for a jackeroo. Today Alice and her husband, Rick, run one of Australia’s largest seedstock operations, Greenup Eidsvold Station Santa Gertrudis, near Kumbia, Queensland. They have three children.
