From the rugged beauty of the Adelaide Hills comes a story of loss, hope and new beginnings
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
