Helen is an outdoorsy woman who lives a full and busy life in the Australian country town of Carlisle. Her surroundings are usually quiet and calm, especially since Carlisle isn’t exactly a hopping metropolis. She enjoys her peace as she focuses on her job, and it’s not bad having two gorgeous young men in the house next door, Liam and David.
At first, she just thinks she’s lucky to have two heartthrobs as neighbors, different as they are. But soon, her life becomes complicated when a third man enters the mix. Helen and her friend Genevieve find themselves battling the prejudices and assumptions of the residents of the town she calls home.
Along this surprising path, the five young people become friends, supporters, and even rivals for each other. They form bonds impossible to break. Still, nothing is simple, especially in love. Shifting Sands is a book about communication—how we can be distracted by the outside world and forget to share ourselves with those closest to us.
