'This is a book about rural Australia, love gained and lost, and fighting for what you believe in. But, unlike many books in the same genre, The Saddler Boys is subtly about so much more.' Weekly Times Schoolteacher Natalie has always been a city girl. She has a handsome boyfriend and a family who give her only the best. But she craves her own space, and her own classroom, before settling down into the life she is expected to lead. When Nat takes up a posting at a tiny school in remote Western Australia, it proves quite the culture shock, but she is soon welcomed by the inquisitive locals, particularly young student Billy and his intriguing single father, Drew. As Nat's school comes under threat of closure, and Billy's estranged mother turns up out of the blue, Nat finds herself fighting for the township and battling with her heart. Torn between her society life in Perth and the rural community that needs her, Nat must risk losing it all to find out what she's really made of - and where she truly belongs. Praise for Fiona Palmer 'Fiona Palmer just keeps getting better.'
Rachael Johns 'Palmer's passion for the land bleeds into the story, and her scenes are vivid and genuine, just as her characters are.' Book'd Out 'Fiona Palmer has well and truly earned her place as a leading writer of one of Australia's much-loved genres.' Countryman
