The wounds you can’t see are the hardest to heal...

Iraq war veteran Dan Mitchell once disobeyed an order — and it nearly destroyed him. Now a national park ranger at Coorah Creek, he’s faced with another order that he cannot obey.

Professional photographer Quinn finds beauty in unlikely places. Quinn’s work comforted Dan in his darkest days, and she can help him again. But she knows darkness too — and Dan soon realises that she needs his help just as much as he needs hers.

Carrie Bryant was a talented jockey before a shocking race fall broke her nerve. Horse breeder Justin Fraser is fighting to save his heritage, but would gladly lose it all to heal Carrie.

Four wounded souls fight for the life of a magnificent wild stallion. Could saving him save them all?

About the author(s)

Janet Gover grew up in outback Australia, surrounded by wide open spaces, horses ... and many, many books.

When her cat lets her actually sit in her chair, she writes stories of strong women, rural communities and falling in love. Her novel Little Girl Lost won the Epic Romantic Novel of the Year Award presented by the Romantic Novelists' Association in the UK, and she has won or been shortlisted for awards in Australia and the USA.

As Juliet Bell, in collaboration with Alison May, she rewrites misunderstood classic fiction, with an emphasis on heroes who are not so heroic.
Her favourite food is tomato. She spends too much time playing silly computer games, and is an enthusiastic, if not always successful, cook.

Janet loves to hear from readers—so do drop her a line.
