Publisher's Summary

Damien McAllister is a man on the brink. Spending long, hard days on a farm he has no affection for, and nights ignoring the criticisms of his mother, Damien can no longer remember what he's living for. But in a small town like Wattle Creek, there are few people to turn to and Damien learned long ago to keep his problems to himself. Until Jacqueline Havelock, a young psychologist escaping her own issues, arrives fresh from the city and makes Damien question everything he has known about himself, also igniting a spark in his lonely heart. Soon Damien is daring to ask for more than an ordinary life, and can glimpse the possibility of happiness.

Will this accidental farmer dare to fulfil the long-forgotten legacy of his father and find peace in the arms of the doctor? Or will the ghosts of their pasts threaten the fragile new lives they've just begun to build?

"This is a very fine story, well-handled, and does not avoid the hard issues." (The Weekly Times)

Excellent

This is an excellent story. The way it explains the understanding of depression and emotions is so good and it actually helped me understand myself as well. I don't know how to put it into words properly but this is my favorite book. l listened to it over and over

Loved it! Well written and performed.

It was so refreshingly original to have a person suffering depression as the hero - not just a moping extra as per many other stories by different authors.
I really enjoyed this book, no cringe worthy moments like I often read by other authors. It was well written.
A great voice performance too, the reader has a pleasant voice which definitely didn't distract me from immersing myself into the book.

Good story

I loved listening to this book. I had the excitement building all the way but I feel that the end was a bit disappointing. i wanted something more romantic :)
