Winner of the Romantic Novelists’ Association Epic Romantic Novel of the Year Award.
As a journalist, I covered many searches for people lost in the bush. There were times it was quite heartbreaking, especially when there was a child involved. I wanted to write a book about that, inspired by the haunting Johnny Ashcroft Ashdown song about a little boy lost which has never left me. But there are many ways by be lost – and it can be hard to find you way home back. Love, in all it’s guises, can help.
