Release day: Long Way Home
Today is the official release of Long Way Home by Susanne Bellamy (book 3, Hearts of the Outback series) (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
Can you ever trust your enemy?
The first time they met, Detective Caleb Richards snapped handcuffs on Sarah Tait and she vowed never to forgive him. But when he seeks her help to find a kidnapped thoroughbred stallion she becomes his unwilling assistant.
Sarah sets out on a marathon endurance ride. As Caleb tags along, he realises that the horse whisperer has deeper secrets than he’d ever suspected.
Can he uncover Sarah’s secrets and win her trust?
Susanne dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
When I started writing Hearts of the Outback, I wanted to go back to the wonderful people I met and lived amongst while teaching in north-west Queensland. There is a real sense of community in a land that can be challenging and unforgiving to those who don’t respect its power. In Long Way Home, I knew I had to tell Sarah Tait’s story. She and Caleb ‘met’ in Heartbreak Homestead and their meeting was the sort that will become the stuff of family legend. The horse whisperer’s challenge is an endurance ride through this vast and wonderful country but the physical journey has parallels with her journey to reconcile her past and find a way forward. The catalyst is Detective Caleb Richards, whom she has sworn never to forgive for their meeting and what he did to her family. Caleb understands the one thing Sarah can’t refuse is a horse in trouble but having gained her assistance, he helps Sarah overcome her secret fear. Sometimes your enemy is the most trustworthy person of all.
