love all Fiona's books
The most heartfelt and moving novel yet from favourite Australian rural romance writer and bestselling author of The Family Farm.
Indianna Wilson is a country girl through and through. She'll do anything she can to save her beloved home town from disappearing off the map – even if she has to die trying. She brings Troy Mitchell to her tiny outback town, with hopes that he can bring a breath of fresh air to the Saints football club and lift the wider farming community.
He's just the spark they need in Hyden but it's the fire that he ignites in Indi's heart that takes her by surprise. She knows he's feeling something too – why, then, does he insist on pushing her away? What is it from his dark past that's preventing them from sharing a future?
As the town rallies together and their fighting spirit returns, Indi and Troy discover that sometimes life offers up a second chance – you just have to be brave enough to take it.

Easy to read and hard to put down. Relate to the story very well as we live near the area.
great book to read
I'm already a fan of Fiona Palmer and was really looking forward to reading this book while on holidays. I started one afternoon and couldn't put it down. This book had everything - heart-warming moments, light hearted laugh's, tear-jerking heartbreaks - everything you could ask for. In "The Outback Heart" Fiona introduces us to Indianna "Indi" Wilson, an All-Australian country girl with a heart as big as the Aussie outback trying to fill the large shoes left by her mum. Indi has taken it upon herself to do all she can to save the local footy club, something she is hoping will invigorate the town of Hyden. Between looking after her dad and brother, working hard at the local grain depo, looking after a local legend and all her committees she doesn't have time for matters of the heart. When footy mad Indi convinces Troy Mitchell to come and coach their team to hopefully a couple of wins she thinks things are finally going to turn around for the town, but she never expected to turn her heart around too. But as in real life the course of love never runs smooth and Troy is very cautious when it comes to his heart - its already been replaced - and then broken irrecoverably and he doesn't think he can loose it again. Fiona handles the issues of organ transplant in this book with dignity and respect without dragging it down with too much medical jargon - but be warned you will need tissues to read this book!!
Gecko Girl Reads
The Outback Heart is moving and engaging story, told with warmth and humour. I was particularly touched to learn that the story was inspired by the life, and death, of a young man in the author's community, to whom she pays tribute at the end of the book.
