Isabelle Simpson longs to take over the family farm, but her ailing father is locked in a tragedy of the past and won’t give her the chance she deserves. The stand-off between them threatens to tear the family apart.
Izzy decides to break free and make a new start for herself — even though that means leaving the handsome Will Timmins and all her mixed emotions about him behind.
But when hardship falls on the farm again, Izzy returns with an even greater determination to resolve the family feud. As she gathers with her friends in the close community under the shade of the gum-tree tavern, confessions are made, long-held secrets are revealed and hearts are set free.
Set under the blazing blue skies and in the golden wheatfields of Western Australia, this is a colourful story of family life on the land, and a heartwarming romance about finding true love and following your dreams.
The Family Farm is a wonderful farm drama about a young girl trying to prove to her stubborn father that she is able to work as hard as any man doing farm work. Add in a bit of romantic tension and past mystery, and you have a great read. Sharon – Goodreads
