~ THE COUNTRY
country weddings fifty years apart and the miracle of second chances...
In the tiny
Tablelands township of Burralea, Flora Drummond is preparing to play in a
string quartet for the wedding of a very close friend. The trouble is, she
can't quite forget the embarrassing teenage crush she once had on the handsome
All is as it should be
on the big day. The little church is filled with flowers, the expectant guests
are arriving, and Mitch is nervously waiting – but his bride has had a sudden
change of heart.
another wedding in the same church led to a similar story of betrayal and
devastation. Hattie missed out on marrying her childhood sweetheart the first
time around, but now she has returned to the scene of her greatest heartache.
As Flora is drawn into
both romantic dramas, she must also confront a relationship crisis of her own.
But the past and the present offer promise for the future and there's a chance
for friends, old and new, to help each other to heal.
From the rolling green
hills of Far North Queensland to the crowded streets of Shanghai on the eve of
the Second World War, this is a beautiful romantic saga that tells of two loves
lost and found and asks the questions – do we ever get over our first love, and
is it ever too late to make amends?
