Acacia's life is at a crossroads. She's feeling at a loss in her life in Sydney when news that her mother is critically ill takes her back to her childhood home of Alice Springs. After a touch and go period, Acacia's mother starts to recover and Acacia is offered a job setting up a school and teaching at an Aboriginal outstation. Surrounded by the mesmerising beauty of the desert, Acacia takes charge of the new school. The challenges are substantial and the work demanding - but it's also deeply satisfying and Acacia is the most fulfilled she's been in her adult life. When Acacia meets Simon, he seems to be everything she's ever looked for in a man. But then things get complicated. This book is both a beautiful love story and a thought-provoking novel set in the exotic red centre of Australia.
