One More Song
Can a city boy and a country girl find a way to be together?
Harrison Baxter and Edwina Campbell lead completely different lives.
Much has changed for Harry since he escaped his home town of Yallambah ten years ago, headed for the bright lights of the big city. Now he’s the star of Melbourne’s hottest musical, and feels more at home centre stage than anywhere else. Why bother going back to Yallambah to visit his parents when his father couldn’t care less about his success?
Meanwhile, nothing much has changed for Edwina in the last decade, which is exactly how she likes it. Eddie adores her career as a nurse and loves the Yallambah community – she can’t imagine living anywhere else. And she could never leave her beloved grandparents, who raised her like their own daughter. She’s not going to abandon them in their old age. Not for anything.
So when Harry and Eddie bump into each other on one of Harry’s flying visits home, their instant mutual attraction seems as pointless as it is intense. There’s no way they could ever make it work.
Or is there?
This story is just a delight. It’s about Eddie and Harry, two people from different worlds, overcoming adversity to follow their dreams and be together. The outback Australian setting is perfect. I love the way Nicki Edwards blends romance, country life and family all into one. She also reminded me about how much I love musicals. This book is about choices – life choices and home choices are key.
Nicki Edwards is a city girl with a country heart. Growing up on a small family acreage, she spent her formative years riding horses and pretending the neighbour’s farm was her own.
When Nicki isn’t reading, writing or dreaming about rural life and medical emergencies, she can be found working as a Critical Care Nurse in the Emergency Department or Intensive Care Unit, where many of her stories and characters are imagined.
