I'm very excited to show you the lovely cover of my new release from Penguin... release date August 27th..


I've loved writing this book. It's Luke Fairburn's story (some of you might remember Luke from Zoe's Muster and Home Before Sundown) but it also contains a historical thread set in North Queensland during WW2, which is something I've wanted to write about for a very long time.


Here's the back cover info.

In 1942, as the Japanese sweep towards northern Australia and allied troops swarm into Townsville, Kitty Martin is sent inland to the safety of Moonlight Plains. But when two American airmen crash on the isolated property, she is forced to grow up fast, coming face to face with tragedy, with love . . . and with heartbreak.

Years on, and Sally Piper, a young journalist, is sent to Moonlight Plains to cover the story of a cattleman turned builder who is restoring his grandmother's forgotten homestead. Sparks fly between them, but Sally is struggling to let go of the past, and Luke has his eyes fixed firmly on the future.

What they uncover together is a shocking secret that has been kept safe for more than seventy years. Now the entire family's happiness is at stake or does the truth about the past hold a valuable lesson for the future?

From the internationally acclaimed and award-winning romance writer Barbara Hannay comes this breathtaking novel about finding love against all the odds. It will have you captivated from beginning to end.

Available for pre-order on amazon.

Best wishes,
