Quiet and sensitive Beth Bateman has a big heart and a passion for Aussie wildlife.
When troubled wards of the state arrive at the Cairn’s farm, tragedy strikes, destroying Beth’s dreams for life. As she battles depression and anxiety, she discovers that sometimes the rescuer needs rescuing.
Does she dare to let go and let God fight for her?
Can she trust that God offers a future and hope so much greater than her shattered dreams?
Mischievous Clare Bateman has accepted one too many of her brother’s crazy dares.
Now she is being sent away, to the Cairn family farm in the tiny town of Kamira Creek.
Clare vows never to accept a dare again, but discovers there is one dare left … a challenge that will take more courage to accept than the last ten years of dares combined.
What secrets are the Cairn family hiding and why does Rod Green despise her? What is troubling Fleur Lester? And what makes Philip Cairn so different from anyone she’s ever met before?
Clare is taken on a journey of faith, hope and love as family secrets are revealed and she learns the sorrow and joy that come with living completely for God in a broken world.
