              She's gone ... will her family pull together, or fall further apart? Classic, women-centred fiction, a complex, multi-layered story about family and community, from the author of the warmly received Home at Last. 'Functionally dysfunctional.' That's how financial analyst Grace Fa...irley describes her family in the small South Australian farming community of Miners Ridge - a family fractured by tragedy and kept that way by anger, resentment and petty jealousies. As the eldest sibling, Grace tries to keep the family in touch, but now she's accepted a promotion to the London office. Time-zones and an enormous workload mean she's forced to take a step back, although she finds time to stay in contact with Miners Ridge landscape gardener Aaron Halliday. Sarah Fairley, Grace's mother, fled Miners Ridge and her embittered husband eight years ago. Now, in the absence of Grace, she finds herself pulled back to the small town where her estranged children and grandchildren live. Drawn into the local community, and trying to rebuild family relationships, she uncovers a long-kept secret that could change her world ... Can Grace, Sarah and their family find a way to heal? Who will have the courage to make the first move?

              By Appleyard, Meredith

              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-lon...g 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.' Weekly Times (Melbourne)

              No Job for a Girl (EPUB ebook)

              By Appleyard, Meredith

              From the bestselling author of The Country Practice comes a quirky and insightful story about fighting for what you believe in, and finding love where you least expect it. Leah Jackson leaves behind everything familiar, taking up a job as the resident safety supervisor and nurse ...in a construction fly camp in the remote South Australian outback. Everyone has told her that it's no job for a girl, but this isn't the first time she's had to prove her mettle. Project adviser Alex McKinley is happy to be as far away from the city as he can get. Recently divorced, he's reassessing where he went wrong. Alex has nothing against women specifically. He'd just rather they weren't working on his construction site, sharing his office, invading his space. In the close confines of the desert camp, anything can happen, and Leah soon finds herself the centre of attention - from bothersome bureaucrats to injured workers and hordes of isolated men. But it is one man in particular who pushes her to her limits ... in more ways than one.
