Rosier O'Shea dreams of seeing the world. But right now, the Outback hotel she inherited from her husband is falling down around her ears, her bank account is empty and family duty means she's staying put.

The only thing keeping Stephanie Bailey sane are the rides she takes on their sprawling property, even if the earth is red and barren as far as her eye can see. Drought has forced the sale of almost all their cattle and her husband is getting more and more distant. The last thing she needs is the complications her brother-in-law brings.

Sydney girl Faith Montgomery is single, out of work and at the age of 31 has just discovered she is adopted. Furious at being lied to for her entire life, she lands a job at the Crossroads Hotel so she can track down her biological mother without revealing who she is. When Cameron Bailey walks into the bar his curious blend of country charm and city savvy has her falling hard.

One family. Three Women. Will the lies they tell and the secrets they hide lead to more heartache of will fate bring them together before it's too late?

A story of deceit, betrayal and love that proves that in the end you can choose your family.

About the Author

Pamela Cook is a city girl with a country lifestyle and too many horses. Her rural fiction novels feature feisty women, tangled family relationships and a healthy dose of romance. Her first novel, Blackwattle Lake, was published in 2012 after being selected for the Queensland Writers' Centre/Hachette Manuscript Development Program. Blackwattle Lake was followed by Essie's Way (2013) and Close To Home (2015) and her fourth book, The Crossroads, is due for release in December 2016. An eclectic reader, Pamela also enjoys writing poetry, memoir pieces and literary fiction and is proud to be a Writer Ambassador for Room to Read, a not-for-profit organisation that promotes literacy and gender equality in developing countries. When she's not writing she wastes as much time as possible riding her handsome quarter horse, Morocco.


Funny, moving and absorbing read with great characters


Great for all different ages. The multi-generational story means that twenty-somethings up to my eighty plus mother and her friends can all enjoy the story and relate to the characters.



Entertaining Read!


I have read all the author's previous books. They are all well written and easy to read with likeable, strong and engaging female characters, the 'Crossroads' included. An entertaining read!

Thoroughly enjoyed this book


Her ability to describe Aussie birds and flora , especially trees makes the whole scene come alive. Her description of people make them so real to me . I can picture them. This is a rare talent. She raises a rural story to much more, to a believable life experience. Simply the best !!!

A thoroughly enjoyable read


This is my favourite of Pamela Cook's books. A character driven study of a family keeping secrets, set against the hardship of an outback town suffering through drought. The three point-of-view characters are well written and distinctive in voice. And Pamela Cook's descriptions had me totally immersed in the setting of a town in drought. I read it in one sitting!

THE CROSSROADS, great story.


Have read all Pamela's books, loved them all. Each is great in their own right but believe this is her best. Loved the photo at the bottom of the cover of the COUNTRY PUB, very iconic and part of what we love about AUSTRALIAN rural romance. Noel HILL.
