Attraction is immediate, but can it survive this harsh environment? Will they find a magical outcome to their problems together?
The Governess is the second novel in Victoria Capper's trilogy of outback romances. A beautiful story told with gentle humour and an authenticity only possible from an author with an intimate knowledge of outback life.
Victoria Capper has lived in outback Australia for most of her life. People asked her what it is like, so she started creating stories about the joys and trials of living in outback Australia. She wanted to share with other people an understanding of the world she knows so well through her memorable characters, hard-working country people, their hardships and their fullness of heart. Her stories take readers into the bush, with its ever-changing moods that stimulate the senses; the tiny delights of the environment brought to life through quick precise strokes.
She is renowned because she writes it as it is – and she tells a great yarn into the bargain.
