Description

After working in a London hospital emergency room, a month as a GP in rural South Australia can't be that hard - or can it? Meghan Kimble is taking control of her life. Newly single, she's returned to Australia to follow her dream of working as a GP. Her first stop is a month-long locum in the colourful community of Magpie Creek. It's been ages since the town has had a permanent doctor and Meghan is generating more than her fair share of attention, especially from forthright farmer Sean Ashby. A handsome man with a difficult past, Sean isn't shy about making his intentions known to the redheaded medico. Against her better judgement, Meghan finds herself charmed by the enigmatic Sean. But time is against her and when love threatens to derail her career plans, she is forced to reassess her priorities in ways she never imagined. Is Meghan ready to fall for all that life in Magpie Creek has to offer? 'A page-turning romance with a medical flavour capturing the essence of rural Australia. Meredith Appleyard is a fresh new country voice.' Tricia Stringer, award-winning author of Queen of the Road 'A refreshing take on traditional rural romance novels.The Country Practice is a beautiful and intriguing tale about country life.'
