RURAL READ: The new novel by Maya Linnell.

Wildflower Ridge is a story about four sisters, one farm and a second chance.

Penny McIntyre loves her life as an ambitious city professional, with a marketing team at her fingertips and a promotion just within reach.

So when she's floored by a mystery illness, and ordered back to the family farm for three months rest and recuperation, she is horrified to find her perfect life imploding.

Within days, Penny leaves her much-loved job, her live-in boyfriend, and her beloved city apartment ... to return to the small country town in which she grew up. Back to her dad and three sisters, one of whom has never forgiven for abandoning the family.
