Something to Talk About
Fleeing a broken engagement, Fergus McWilliams accepts a temporary teaching position in the farming community of Walsh, with its mix of small-town gossip and big-hearted community spirit that will be recognisable to anyone who has lived in regional Australia. He soon meets local dairy farmer and café owner Tabitha Cooper, who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to achieve her dreams ─ alone. Despite an embarrassing first meeting, and their subsequent determination to avoid each other, Tabitha and Fergus increasingly find themselves thrown together. A sequel to Talk of the Town, Something to Talk About works equally well as a stand-alone novel. Touching on several deeper issues, including loss, aging and disability, this latest rural romance by Rachael Johns is the perfect escape in the midst of a pandemic, or simply to warm up a wintry weekend.
