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.

Not up to Rachael's usual good standard


Very disappointed in this book. Hated what Rachael turned Charlie into! The plot was quite unbelievable, especially the ending.

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

Typical Rachel Treasure work. Very easy to read and follow



I enjoyed every minute of it...


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 one is disappointing


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.

Rachael Treasure

Tasmanian born Rachael Treasure gets as excited about dung beetle activity in the soil as she does by beautiful writing.

Rachael lives in Southern rural Tasmania and is a full time mother to two young humans and many eccentric animals including a budgie called Putty Plonkit. She has been dubbed an agricultural activist, farm feminist and literary pioneer and has worked as a rural journalist, radio broadcaster, truffle sniffer dog handler, professional wool classer, stock camp cook, drover, farm manager and working dog trainer.

Her novels following Jillaroo include The StockmanThe RouseaboutThe Cattleman's Daughter,The Farmer's WifeCleanskin Cowgirls and short story collections, The Girl and the Ghost-Grey Mare and Fifty Bales of Hay. Non fiction works are Don't Fence Me In – Grassroots Wisdom from a Country Gal and working dog training book, Dog Speak. Her screenplay Albert's Chook Tractorwas filmed for SBS Independent TV.
