They got married and lived happily ever after ... or did they?
A tale of courage and redemption by the author of Wattle Creek
The Farmer’s Wife is the much anticipated sequel to the groundbreaking novel Jillaroo, by Australia’s No. 1 rural fiction author, Rachael Treasure.
When Emily Oliphant married eligible farmer John Stratten, she thought it was the beginning of an exciting new adventure. Three years later, she finds herself trapped in a loveless lie to a callous man.
After marrying her party boy, Charlie Lewis, Rebecca Saunders finds herself lost in marriage, motherhood and a farm that fails to function. Then a Tupperware party with a twist sets the wheels in motion for Rebecca to change her path in life. Can she heal her troubled relationship with Charlie and convince him to run the farm in a better way? Or will life take her down another track altogether with the impossibly young track rider Joey, the handsome and wealthy Sol Stanton, or the inspiring environmentalist and cattle farmer Andrew Travis?

Along the way, she meets some new friends and finds an inner strength she never knew she had. Will she risk everything and invest in the ramshackle property that has finally given her a sense of purpose? Or will she listen to the views of the community and her mother and go back to her sensible but meaningless life with John? Softcover • 386 pages •

From bestselling author Beth Kery comes an erotic romance like no other – where the rules of attraction are broken with that first electrifying touch. It’s at a cocktail party in her honour that she first meets him – and the attraction is immediate for graduate student Francesca Arno. It’s also bewildering.

For Ian, Francesca is the kind of woman he can’t resist – one that comes all too rarely: a true innocent. But he can sense in her a desire to open up, to experiment, to give herself to the fantasies of a man in control.
