A compelling rural romance set in the rugged high country of New Zealand’s South Island.
Four generations of the Black family have farmed Blackpeak Station. Next in line, or so she believes, is Charlotte Black, stubborn as rock and unbiddable as the weather. But standing in her way are 150 years of tradition, an older brother, and a father who believes that daughters run families, not farms.
To make her childhood dream of owning the family property come true, she'll have to be as tough as the mountains themselves. There can be no room for romance in Charlotte's life. Or so she thinks, until it arrives at her door. Can she have both love and land, or must she choose? Can Charlotte learn to trust her heart?

Holly Ford is a new author for me and I quite enjoyed this book of hers. Set in the South Island high country, it tells the story of a high country station and, in particular, the daughter of the family who only wants to be a farmer, despite difficulties. Add in the usual problems encountered on a sheep station plus quite a dash of romance, a villain you just know is not honest and you have this book. Well written and either well researched or, perhaps, Ms Ford knows the high country. Recommended to all those who like books set in NZ.
