Publisher Description

This captivating story of two people recovering from terrible tragedy and loss, and the importance of community, friendship and the power of love. 


Already struggling to come to terms with the tragic death of her husband, Sophie Bryant nearly loses her own life while attending a domestic dispute as a paramedic. Diagnosed with a mild form of post-traumatic stress disorder, Sophie decides to accept a posting to the remote township of Hilsons Ridge.


Soon after her arrival, Sophie decides on a whim to buy an old house on the outskirts of town. There, she discovers the diary of a light horse trooper from the First World War, which she finds fascinating.


Local vet, Zac Conway, is also struggling in the wake of losing his life partner. So when Sophie brings an abandoned horse to him for treatment and they get to know each other, Zac is surprised to feel emotions he never hoped to experience again.


The peace and tranquillity of living in her new community sees Sophie gradually recovering from her trauma and grief. As she discovers more about her farm's history, she realises that the past and the present are irrevocably connected and, just like love, it waits for the right person to come along to unlock its secrets.


If Wishes Were Horses is a totally captivating novel combining romance and history with a dash of suspense.

Yet another wonderful, uplifting Karly Lane novel

I've been a Karly Lane fan for years and If Wishes Were Horses is fantastic. After a terrible tragedy, the main character has moved to the country to try and recover. Combining romance, history and fab characters, I loved this. Highly recommended!

A delightful page turner

I too am a huge fan of Karly Lane & have never been disappointed with any book chosen. This one I particlarly like & took no time in reading simply because I couldn’t stop. The reasons are varied; characters were real, romance goes without saying, interesting references to WW1 & the Australian brumbies & knowing when you have found the right place to settle.
