“Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this wonderful book
and fall in love.” (5 star review)
“Come for the romance and stay for the breathtaking scenery. ”
(5 star review)
Lexie stopped walking and shot around. “Look, I get it that you’re not happy with the current situation. But I’m trying my best here.” She blew out a breath to calm herself. “I don’t really think this is the right place to have this discussion, but maybe the right time for you to ponder about the alternatives. Perth, big house, your mother working massive hours to afford it, which would mean you’re in after care, or Beauty Bay, small house, hopefully we’ll find something bigger soon, and I can drop you off and pick you up from school, plus we have enough money for two holidays a year.”
Without waiting for an answer, she turned around again, but didn’t move. Exhaling another long breath, she conceded that they were lost. And it scared her. A lot.
Lexie whirled around again. “What?” But as soon as she saw her daughter’s timid look in her eyes, she apologised straight away. “I’m sorry, honey. But—”
Zoe shook her head. “Mum, listen,” she said just above a whisper.
Lexie focussed and followed the girl’s gaze.
“There! A car.”
“Hallelujah,” Lexie whispered.
“Can you run?”
Hands on hips, Lexie said, “I’m old, but I’m no geriatric.”
“Well, d’oh, Mum. Then run.”
Thanks for all your comments,
