After witnessing the worst drought ever recorded in Australia, Nathan (NathanAdamsSite.com) has decided to help drought and debt stricken farmers with proceeds from the sale of his first book.
He says, “Emaciated cattle and sheep have been turned out to forage on dried crops and die in the dust. Debt ruined farmers have been killing themselves in despair.

This is the publisher’s summary of the novel: "After the sudden death of her daughter, whom she has not been in touch with for 15 years, May Lewis inherits her two 13 year old grandkids, a boy and a girl. A con artist and social worker both wish to have them removed from her, and work against her with this aim in mind. Meanwhile Jack, a man who has loved May for years, but is biding his time until May's institutionalized husband dies, finds an unexpected rival for May's affections in a man named Harold. But are Harold's intentions true like Jack's? Will May be able to find true love and retain custody of her grandchildren?"
