Smart and reliable, Gemma Northcote has always done what’s expected of her. So it’s not surprising that after university she defers to her father’s wish that she join the family business.

Gemma’s best friend, Jasmine, is a different personality altogether. She thrives on spontaneity, is unpredictable and has generally pursued her own path.

When Gemma and Jasmine decide to spend a working holiday on a large rural property, their friends and family are surprised. Neither has any experience of country life (unless you count Jasmine’s love of McLeod’s Daughters) and they’re not exactly farming types.

Away from her family, Gemma feels liberated. The longer she’s away the more she questions what she really wants to do with her future. Ultimately, she realises she needs to choose between duty and what’s right for her in life – and love.
