What if the love of your life forgot who you were? When outback midwife Ava May meets Zac on a flight to Alice Springs, they tumble into a whirlwind affair. But an exciting adventure leads to a terrible accident, with shattering consequences. The couple who had so much going for them now find themselves with everything to lose. Devastated, Ava retreats to her family cattle station to help salvage what she can of the critical situation. But at home on the drought-ridden farm, her brother is being pushed to his limits, and as his depression intensifies, Ava must step in to prevent another family tragedy. Against the majestic backdrop of Australia's Red Centre, old dreams are shattered, new babies are born and true love takes flight. By Australia's renowned midwife and bestselling author of Mothers' Day, The Desert Midwife is a romantic drama about strong women, medical miracles and new beginnings.
