Publisher's Summary

Meriel grows up in England a tomboy, helping her beloved grandfather with DIY. At school she discovers a talent and loves for art, but her mother forces her to become an accountant. She's good at that, too, but her heart isn't in it. Ben and his wife have a dream of designing a country retreat, but when she's killed in an accident, he's left to struggle on alone. After her grandpa dies, Meriel immigrates to Australia, where she meets Ben. They are very different characters, but when circumstances force them to share a house, they can no longer deny the attraction. There are many obstacles to overcome, but can Ben and Meriel ultimately find a way to unite their dreams?

    Love reading and writing poetry. I would love to write my own books rather than reading one for a change.

    "DISAPOINTING!"

    I must admit I was disapointed with this one from Anna Jacobs. I was trying to do something else, even so it did not grab my attention from the start unfortunately.
