Release day: The Outback Governess

14 November 2017

Today is the official release of The Outback Governess by Sarah Williams (print and ebook, Serenade Publishing). Here’s the blurb:

When special-needs teacher Paige, takes up the position of Governess for three young children in the Queensland outback, she has no idea just how much and how quickly she would come to love the dusty, dry country, and the family who desperately need her.

Logan was heartbroken when his wife died, leaving him to raise their three children with the help of his aging parents on their remote cattle station. To avoid the constant reminder of the love he lost, he works on a mine in Mt Isa, meaning he only sees his family week on, week off.

But then tragedy strikes and Paige and Logan are forced to work together to look after the children, alone on the station. As well as being their teacher, Paige also becomes a substitute mother and teaches Logan how to be a parent again. A role he has avoided since losing his wife.

Can Paige bring the family back together or have the wounds of the past cut too deep?

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

I recently spent some time in Longreach, Qld, where we visited the School of the Air classrooms and facilities. I took my four children with me and my husband and I had to drag them out. They loved the school and the staff so much. They still ask when they will start doing SOTA and get to stay home every day. During my research for The Outback Governess I learnt how much is involved for the tutors preparing lessons and supervising them. I take my hat off to all the mums and govies in outback and rural Australia who juggle teaching, motherhood and life on the land. You are all heroines!
