About the Book

Emily Mouse

Air Marshal John Campbell returns to his family’s estate. ‘Hobbington Manor’ lies just south of Woodstock in Oxfordshire England. With no ambitions, to join the family, firm. John’s attention soon turns to Hannah Miles. Those close to him meddle in his budding relationship with Hannah. Peter Jamison the co-pilot in John’s Lancaster flight crew accepts John’s invitation to his stately Manor home. Falling in love with Emily, Peter conceals his family secret from those around him at the Manor. Amidst the turmoil, the hand of fate has dealt and his brother’s confrontation. John turns to Anne Foster, confiding in her. Anne harbors John’s passion for a farming life and admiration.

John’s acquisition of ‘Bach Llwyd Llygoden’ and ‘Glen Usk’ fulfills a passion. They move to the Welsh countryside on the Ithon River, just east of Llandrindod Wells. A move, which Anne knows within her heart, is just the stepping-stone. Together they discover the joys and sobering heartaches of the Welsh Pastoralist’s life. In an unexpected meeting with an Australian RAAF colleague who reignites John’s passions. For the land of searing heat, the musters and the shearing shed. The smell of Gidgee trees on the morning air, and ‘Thargo Rain’. The wonders, the flooding river water brings to barren, sun patched earth. Is River Gum Station the answer to quench this passion? John wonders standing at the kitchen window looking out at the snow covered land of ‘Bach Llwyd Llygoden’.
