'Vividly transports you to the Gulf Country … settle in for a really enjoyable read.' Susan Duncan, bestselling author of Salvation Creek
Kelly Roberts finds refuge in the rugged and remote cattle country of northern Australia, but when tragedy strikes she is forced to find a new life for herself and her children outside of Rainsford Station.
She retreats to the family's only asset – a freehold block of land owned jointly by her eccentric father-in-law, Quinn. In the valley at Evergreen Springs, Quinn hopes the fractured family might all come together to start over again.
Life in Queensland's far north is wildly unpredictable, with daily challenges and the wet season, in all its wild majesty, to survive. But when twelve-year-old Rob makes the gruesome discovery of a dead body in the valley, real peril comes far too close to home.
Tracking North is a beautiful family story about life in the stunning Gulf Country, one of the world's most unique and fascinating places.

Looking for more by this author.
This is a delightful read, not only about the theme of the story line but the words which seem to flow with interwoven descriptive passages to make the reader feel as though they can visually picture the scenes of the Australian outback. In addition the use of colloquial language/words brought the story more humanised intent to the reader, getting a real feel for the folk who are prepared to make their lives in isolation of the vast Australian continent. I highly recommend this book and look forward to searching more from this author.
