Silver in the Sun
Penguin, 2007. First edition, first printing. A trade paperback copy in near fine condition.
When Ian Richardson inherits Kanimbla, the biggest sheep property in the Murrawee district, everyone expects him to sell up, take the money and run - especially when they learn of his long-term plan to study medicine. But Ian quickly proves himself to be a capable boss, earning the respect of his employees and clients, and winning the heart of every woman he meets, especially the beautiful Fiona McDonald. Ian's boundless energy is infectious, and when he suggests that the community pull together to rescue their dying township, even the most hardened cattlemen stand up to be counted. As Ian and Fiona work side by side to help put Murrawee back on the map, Fiona becomes more hopeful of their future together, but Ian is torn - should he stay? Or follow his dream of working in medical research? And then Ian receives a letter from the estate of his long-dead parents, and the path he must follow is suddenly crystal-clear. An inspiring tale of how one man's courage and vision can transform a whole town, and how only the love of a good woman can change the man.
