Release day: Brumby’s Run

2 July 2012

Today is the official release of Brumby’s Run by Jennifer Scoullar (trade paperback, Penguin).  Here’s the blurb:

A blissful carefree summer beckons for Samantha Carmichael. But her world is turned on its head when she learns she’s adopted – and that she has a twin sister, Charlie, who is critically ill.

While Charlie recovers in hospital, Sam offers to look after Brumby’s Run, her sister’s home high in the Victorian Alps. Within days city girl Sam finds herself breaking brumbies and running cattle with the help of handsome neighbour Drew Chandler, her sister’s erstwhile boyfriend.

A daunting challenge soon becomes a wholehearted tree change as Sam begins to fall in love with Brumby’s Run – and with Drew. But what will happen when Charlie comes back to claim what is rightfully hers?

Set among the hauntingly beautiful ghost gums and wild horses of the high country, Brumby’s Run is a heartfelt, romantic novel about families and secrets, love and envy and, most especially, the bonds of sisterhood.

Jennifer dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Brumby’s Run is a story about love, mistaken identity and the fabled wild horses of the Victoria’s high country. It is dedicated to the wonderful Brumby rescue organisations all over Australia. 

You can find out more about Brumby’s Run on Jennifer’s website and the book is available for sale from Penguin.

    Sam sure is going to have her world turned upside down. I’m not sure how I would feel finding out I have a twin in the world.

    Congratulations on publishing your first novel! I do like the sound of your premise. I’ve been in the Victorian high country a few times and on one occasion actually saw a small group of brumbies. We were very excited and were able to watch them for a little while before something spooked them and they took off.
    Best of luck with your lovely story. 🙂
