    Couldn't put it down

    ALISSA Callen brings to light the struggle graziers are having to keep stock routes open, in a novel that tells of struggles, heartbreak and determination, with an ultimately happy ending. Cressida Knight is content to focus on keeping her family's property alive, tending to the animals she loves, including a pet bull called Reggie, and Kevin, a guard cockatoo that she'd rescued. Adding to that, she loves her work with the SES. The last thing she needs is for her former love, Denham Rigby, to come riding back into Woodlea and disturb her life. Three years ago, Denham had ridden out of her life chasing rodeo dreams in the US and Cressy had blamed herself as being the reason he'd left. Little did she know that a family secret, or what Denham saw as a curse, left him little choice but to leave Cressy behind before she suffered, too. When Denham has to return due to family circumstances, of course their paths cross again (after all, they live on neighbouring properties), and, well, you can guess the ending. This is not some soppy love story, though. Along the way to finding happiness, Denham and Cressy are met with unending challenges from both within themselves and outside forces. They are fighting to keep properties going, fighting to help farmers dealing with stress and the dark cloud of suicide, and then a storm hits, throwing many people's lives into chaos. As well as being a rural romance, Callen tells the tale that farmers are living all over the country as they also fight to keep their way of life intact from city bureaucrats. The author has a way of writing that draws you in from the first page and keeps you hooked until the last word. The Long Paddock is one of those stories that will stay with you long after you've closed the book - you don't want to put it down to find out what happens next, but it will leave you feeling sad that it's over.
