Release day: Journey’s End on the Western Plains
Today is the official release of Journey’s End on the Western Plains by Isabella Hargreaves (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
Outback Australia, 1924: Matron Marion Henderson of Idavale Private Hospital wants romance in her life and promises she’ll go out with the first man who asks. That man is Bill Carter, ex-pastoralist, ex-soldier, wanderer, whose guilt about leaving home for war has kept him from returning ever since. Marion wants someone reliable with whom to share her life, but Bill’s behaviour rekindles Marion’s memories of her war-damaged first husband. Can they face their ghosts and create a future together?
Isabella dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Ever wonder what happened to those who returned from World War I? I did and that’s how Journey’s End on the Western Plains and its prequel All Quiet on the Western Plains came about. However, coming home can be harder than leaving. In Journey’s End, Bill Carter’s guilt about his going to war, which he believes caused his mother’s death, has kept him wandering Australia, unable to settle to a new life. Meeting Matron Marion Henderson of the Idavale Private Hospital is his turning point, but he has a few more steps to take before he’s home for good.
