How do you choose between a long-lost sister and the man who's stolen your heart?
Set among the hauntingly beautiful ghost gums and wild horses of the high country, Brumby's Run is a heartfelt, romantic novel about families and secrets, love and envy, and most especially the bonds of sisterhood.
Samantha Carmichael's world is turned on its head when she learns that she's adopted – and that she has a twin sister, Charlie, who is critically ill.
While Charlie recovers in hospital, Sam offers to look after Brumby's Run, her sister's home high in the Victorian Alps. Within days, city girl Sam finds herself breaking brumbies and running cattle with the help of handsome neighbour Drew Chandler, her sister's erstwhile boyfriend.
A daunting challenge soon becomes a wholehearted tree change as Sam begins to fall in love with Brumby's Run – and with Drew. But what will happen when Charlie returns to claim what is rightfully hers?

The spirit of the Australian bushman and bush women is superbly captured in this novel. Fine horsemanship, human frailty and a good dose of the high country bush fills the pages. A terrific read.

Very basic and childlike writing style. Became quite boring. Skipped through most of it.
