A bit about Gillian...
Gillian is an English woman living in rural Australia with her cattle dog Jess. She loves writing and also enjoys gardening, cooking, horse-riding and singing amongst other interests. She has travelled widely in Australia and enjoys meeting people and hearing their stories.
She has three children and four grandchildren living in England, France and Australia. She loves to spend time with them when ever possible.
Will her nightmare end in tragedy or resolution?
Rachel is on her property in the remoteness of the Australian outback; alone. Her husband has passed, and her estranged son who had left years ago, arrives to demand his share of his dead father’s inheritance. Rachel is terrified of him and his threats are not to be dismissed with mere insolence of his parents. She is very frightened of him and then suspicious of him, when she finds the dead body of a stranger in her creek and is afraid it is linked to him.
She calls the police. She meets the new police sergeant, Mike, and he befriends her with a new and enticing friendship that Rachel finds refreshing. Then her dog dies and Rachel knows there is more than meets the eye to the events surrounding circumstances. With Mike confronting her son, and a gun fight ensuing with the motorbike gang, she must protect the ones she loves even if it means breaking their hearts in the process...
No one knows how alone Rachel’s heart truly is…
