Teaching in the outback has always agreed with Sarah Rossiter, but the situation with cattle rancher Reid McKinnon is making her keen to move on. Once lovers, they parted without explanation, and though Sarah's certain Reid still loves her, he won't acknowledge or discuss it. Learning that she's leaving shakes Reid up, but will it make him tell Sarah the truth at last? Barbara Hannay winds up her Southern Cross Ranch trilogy with The Mirrabrook Marriage (2). Hanging on a very slim premise—Reid's secret is terrible, but his response and actions don't make any sense—it still has a beautiful setting going for it.
