For two years Priscilla Johnson watched John Sterling manage his cattle station, and at the tender age of eighteen she innocently surrendered her young heart to him. He was big, brash, brazen and Australian. Everyone called it infatuation, Priss knew it was love.
But Priscilla had to move on with her life. Four years at college in Hawaii provided the time and distance to transform a naive girl into a desirable, mature woman.
Returning to Australia as a certified teacher, she was ready to put John to the test. And ready or not, he was about to learn a lesson he would never forget.
I love Diana Palmers books. Her portrayal of men has gentled in the last few years. In the Australian our hero is a lot older than our heroine and he is very much in love with her but acts like he isn't because he thinks he is giving her an opportunity to go grow up and find herself. When she comes back to teach school, he thinks he has a chance but then he blows it. Fortunately they do end up with each other but there is a lot of pain and struggle on both their parts. Its a good story and if you like Diana Palmers books, you'll like this one to.
