Flight to Coorah Creek by Janet Gover
  

Lovereading view...

This is a romance with heart and soul, the perfect read to escape reality for a few hours. Become lost in a different landscape, one of red earth, blazing blue skies and miles of wilderness, where support and trust is necessary for survival. The author describes the Australian Outback with passion and a lot of respect. Five main characters are introduced, three of them hiding or running away from the past. In this heartwarming and moving tale of secrets and love, Sister Luke underpins the whole story with her calm and kindness (and some serious endeavours in the matchmaking department). A very enjoyable read, this book prompts you to remember that you can run away, but you can’t hide from yourself or love. ~ Liz Robinson

Choc Lit, the publisher of this novel, was the 2012 Publisher of the Year as voted for by the Festival of Romance.

Synopsis

Flight to Coorah Creek by Janet Gover

What happens when you can fly, but you just can't hide? Only Jessica Pearson knows the truth when the press portray her as the woman who betrayed her lover to escape prosecution. But will her new job flying an outback air ambulance help her sleep at night or atone for a lost life? Doctor Adam Gilmore touches the lives of his patients, but his own scars mean he can never let a woman touch his heart. Runaway Ellen Parkes wants to build a safe future for her two children. Without a man - not even one as gentle as Jack North. In Coorah Creek, a town on the edge of nowhere, you're judged by what you do, not what people say about you. But when the harshest judge is the one you see in the mirror, there's nowhere left to hide. Set in the Outback of Australia - a perfect example of Chook Lit!

Reviews

While the story holds a strong message of how we all deserve to be forgiven, mostly by ourselves, but by others, too, it s the strong characters that will stay with me. The selflessness of Jack and Adam, the courage and fighting spirit of Ellen, the essential goodness of Jess. They made this story strong and unputdownable.


About the Author

An extract from Janet's website tells a little about herself :-

I grew up surrounded by books. Both my parents loved to read and they shared that love with me. In the tiny Australian bush town where we lived, there wasn’t a lot to do except read and ride my ponies. As it’s pretty hard to make a living out of riding ponies, I guess I was always going to be a writer. After some fun-filled years at Queensland University (during which I passed the occasional exam), I became a television journalist, first in Australia, then in Asia and Europe. I got to see and do a lot of unusual things. I met some interesting people, including one Pope, at least three Prime Ministers, a few movie stars and a dolphin.
