This is a fabulous story so beautifully written emotional and so very joyful as well, it is one that will keep you turning the pages as we follow the lives of five women who become The Homestead Girls.

Dr Billie Green decides that it is time to move back to her home town of Mica Ridge after her sixteen year old daughter Mia gets in with the wrong crowd in The City Billie has always wanted to join The Flying Doctor Service and now the chance has come up she jumps at the opportunity.

Daphne Prince is a nurse at the RFDS in Mica Ridge she is one of the most caring and beautiful people you would ever meet but she has things in her past that she does not open up about.

Soretta Byrnes lives on a sheep station Blue Hills just outside of Mica Ridge with her grandfather and with a drought things are tough but Soretta needs to find a way to keep the station she loves as being on the land means so much to her and her grandfather.

Lorna Lamerton is eighty years old was the outback nurse and wife to the Doctor she is widowed now but is so strong and feisty and loveable.

I loved this story as these five Ladies become housemates on Blue Hills and become so close to each other they are such a support team they are there for romantic adventures illness advice challenges threats and to love and care for each other. Their journey will have you shedding tears and smiling as you bond with them as they open up to each other through worrying and fun times in such a beautiful setting. This is a story that I highly recommend this is one that will be on the keeper shelf and reread many times. Thank you MS McArthur for another awesome story that will stay with me for a long time to come.

5/5 star read for a fabulous story
