Description of this Book

When her dad breaks his leg, Skye has to lead the muster on her family's cattle station in the Kimberley. She's never been the boss on a muster before and her job gets harder with the surprise arrival of her high-maintenance fashionista best friend from boarding school. On the upside there is the very handsome Dan, a young jackaroo.But while Skye is a great horse rider and a seasoned cattle wrangler, she's ill-equipped to handle the human element and in this beautiful yet harsh country, jealousy, hot-tempers and inexperience may cost her more than she could have imagined. It will certainly be a cattle muster Skye will never forget...A compelling tale of cow-wrangling, crocodiles, campfires, silent tears and stolen kisses that unfolds beneath the big sky over a dramatic and unforgiving landscape.

Author's Bio

Melaina Faranda cashed in her university prizes for literature to wander the world in a perennial quest for discovery. She has trekked among wild tigers and Himalayan bandits, slept on cardboard and in a Baroness's bed, lived in a treehouse on the side of a Hawaiian volcano and as a 'ghost' in a grand old Hudson River mansion. Far more intrepid still - she is a trained secondary English teacher and has enjoyed braving the asphalt gauntlet for over ten years. Telling stories was easier than reading the riot act, and it was these teaching experiences and love for her students that led Melaina to establish personal development groups for teenagers, and from there to writing. With special interests in mythology, magic, fairy tales in popular culture, body image and the supernatural, Melaina is a popular speaker, and her presentations are as entertaining as they're educational!
