Growing up on her parents' farm, Rachael Treasure knew from a young age this was going to be her life. She loved everything about farming life and when she married and had children of her own the desire to stick around on the land was still with her, but it all changed when her marriage broke down. She lost everything and suddenly she was faced with nowhere to live and she had two children and her dogs to support, Racheal felt her world was falling apart.

Rachael’s life as she once knew it had been ripped from under her and it seemed her love of farming were gone for good. With little money coming in Rachael could hardly afford to pay rent so there was no way she could afford to invest in a farm. Farming was all she had ever known it was in her blood, so she knew she wouldn’t give up her dream without a fight.

This is a wonderful heartfelt memoir of Aussie author Rachael Treasure’s life. In this memoir we get a glimpse of the struggles that Rachael endured during her marriage breakdown and being a single mother. This is one determined, strong willed and inspiring lady who never gave up even if the odds were against her. Yes, you guessed it, I really enjoyed this book and now I want to read all her other books. A fabulous book written by a fabulous Aussie author. Highly recommended.
