By Treasure, Rachael
From one of Australia's bestselling and much-loved authors comes a sweeping, powerful story of a young woman who has to overcome terrible loss and trauma in her life to find the courage to live life on her terms and be with the man she loves. Following the death of her mother whe...n she was just a young child, Drift has been raised by her father, growing up to work alongside him as an itinerant cattle drover along the beautiful coastline of remote Western Australia. Drift is an idealistic young woman, but finds she has to grow up fast in an often ugly and brutal world. After a horrific sexual assault, she meets a handsome young stockman, but he is not all that he seems and she is drawn into a baffling world of lies and mysteries. When her father is hospitalised following a tragic accident and the young man she loves disappears, Drift has to find the courage to make her own way in the world, learning as she goes to overcome heartbreak and pain in order to own her own truth, and create the kind of world that she wants to live in. Drift is a heroine to cheer for, and White Horses is a novel full of authentic Australian heart and soul, warmth and humour, as big and as generous as those wide-open skies in Western Australia. White Horses is another classic from the much-loved Rachael Treasure, in the tradition of her iconic and bestselling novels Jillaroo and The Farmer's Wife.Read more
