Home Before Sundown




Home Before Sundown is a polished contemporary rural romance from internationally bestselling romance writer Barbara Hannay, author of Zoe's Muster.

For Bella Fairburn, a girl from the bush, her new life in Europe is a dream come true. But news of her beloved father's heart attack brings Bella rushing back to Australia along with her aunt Liz, an acclaimed musician who's been living in London for the past thirty years.

Coming home is fraught with emotional danger for both women. While Bella is confident she can deal with drought, bushfires and bogged cattle, she dreads facing her neighbour. Gabe Mitchell is the man she once hoped to marry, but he's also the man who broke her heart.

And for Liz, Mullinjim holds a painful secret that must never be revealed...

In the rugged beauty of the outback, new futures beckon, but Bella and Liz must first confront the heartaches of the past.

Bestselling author Barbara Hannay is a city-bred girl with a yen for country life. Most of her forty-plus books are set in rural and outback Australia and have been enjoyed by readers around the world.
