Book Review - Heartland by Cathryn Hein

Callie leaves her roving lifestyle to return to her roots when she inherits her grandmother's farm. She is still dealing with her guilt over her older sister's death from a drug overdose, convinced she contributed by wanting to go out with her on the fateful night. She means to sell the farm quickly and give the proceeds to the educational and charitable foundation her parents have set up in her sister's name. Circumstances mean she has to stay in the district for longer than she planned, face her demons and try to forgive herself. Along the way she is helped by an ex-soldier, Matt, from the adjoining farm. This is a competent rural romance, with much loved horses, cute puppies, grizzled horse trainers, a bush fire emergency and a lively local pub. Wendy
