Claire McIntyre has it all: an adoring husband, a bubbly best friend, a chic townhouse, and a high-flying corporate career in the city. But somehow she's forgotten what really makes her happy. After receiving tragic news, closely followed by the loss of her job, Claire's world is thrown into turmoil. She is then forced to reconsider everything that matters to her. Claire soon finds herself back at the very place she's been running - from the family property. A place where the bush telegraph exposes every secret, where reputations are hard won and easily lost, and where fortune is as fickle as the weather. Here, in the rugged beauty of the Australian Adelaide Hills, Claire starts to rebuild her life with her friends, her father and his beloved racehorses - including a promising young horse called Paycheque.
But just as she begins to find happiness, and perhaps even love, fate comes to call. Now Claire must decide whether to do the sensible thing, or risk it all on her newfound passion....
Easy listening story with a great storyline. Well narrated by Jennifer Vuletic .
The storyline was easy to follow and kept me interested throughout!
The story was a little predictable and the main character somewhat high strung and irritating. The narration was good. Hard at times to believe there weren't more than one person reading. This performance made an otherwise average novel a good listen.
