A wedding and a will, a bushfire and a baby: who said the country was quiet?
Paula knew when she moved to the country that the life would be tough. Nearly a year into her marriage with farmer Dan, and now pregnant, she is proud of her ability to feed shearers, bake a pasty and fix a fence while still running her accountancy business from home. With a wedding to plan, the farm to run and neighbours to help out, life is busy but good.
But there are clouds on the horizon. Dan is increasingly tired and distant. He promised he would always tell her the truth, so why is he being so mysterious about his late father’s will? And why is his abrasive Aunt Rowena suddenly so interested in the sex and due date of Paula’s baby? As bushfires rage, Paula makes a discovery that shocks her and threatens all she holds dear.
I love the idea of owning a rural property. The quiet, being close to nature and spending time reading outdoors…
Comes Rain or Shine is another great novel written by Tricia Stringer. The story follows newlyweds Paula and Dan as they live their lives on their farm. Paula does the work indoors whilst Dan does the farming. I loved the descriptions of farming and reading about the life of a farmer. I knew they lead busy lives… but I did not imagine this.
Dan struggles to tell Paula about his Dad’s will that could take away their hopes and dreams of staying in the property.
I loved reading about Paula’s pregnancy. It took me back to my own pregnancy, which was lovely. The small town doctors and friends in the town add to the charm of the place.
Dan can be quite a frustrating character as he hides a secret from Paula, yet together they are very much in love. This is another book that I would recommend from the talented Tricia Stringer.
