A small town contemporary romance about unexpected love and second chances. . .
In the winter of 1948, a poorly educated jack-of-all-trades moved his ever- increasing family to a small vegetable crops' farm on the Darling Downs, in Queensland. They arrived in a horse and wagon to begin an extraordinary life of hardship and challenge in the bush. This book follows the harsh life of poverty that is eclipsed by the threads of dry humour, love and warmth that embraces a large closely-knit family. The living conditions endured are almost primitive, even for the nineteen fifties, as they fight to carve an existence from the land. His father's lingering fight with lung cancer compounds the pain of his own battle, as a National Service Soldier in the Vietnam War. The accounts of the war are graphic and poignant, and could only emerge from one who has experienced the frightening reality of combat. Highlighted through the suffering and dreams is a mother's undying devotion to her family, as she struggles to raise them, more or less on her own.

Although a famous Swiss author, Regina Ullmann has never appeared before in English: her oracular, strange, singular voice astonishes. Never before in English, Regina Ullmann's work is distinctive and otherworldly, resonant of nineteenth-century village tales and of authors such as Adalbert Stifter and her contemporary Robert Walser. In the stories of The Country Road, largely set in the Swiss countryside, the archaic and the modern collide, and "sometimes the whole world appears to be painted on porcelain, right down to the dangerous cracks." this delicate but fragile beauty, with its ominous undertones, gives Ullmann her unique voice.
Dene Ward was a city girl who married a country boy. They raised their family in the country, as their father was raised, and she quickly learned about toiling in the garden, chasing loose pigs, looking for snakes in the oddest places, and never taking for granted electricity, running water, and a clear path from the road to the house--half a mile down the country lane. Join her as she shares the lessons she has acquired with hard experience, which have also given her more insight to the rural-based lessons Jesus taught, and find yourself too, a little closer to God.
