‘Rosie O’Shea dreams of seeing the world. But right now, the outback hotel she inherited from her husband is falling down around her ears, her bank account is empty and family duty means she’s staying put.

The only thing keeping Stephanie Bailey sane are the rides she takes on their sprawling property, even if the earth is red and barren as far as her eye can see. Drought has forced the sale of almost all their cattle and her husband is getting more and more distant. The last thing she needs is the complications her brother-in-law brings.

Sydney girl Faith Montgomery is single, out of work and at the age of 31 has just discovered she is adopted. Furious at being lied to for her entire life, she lands a job at the Crossroads Hotel so she can track down her biological mother without revealing who she is. When Cameron Bailey walks into the bar his curious blend of country charm and city savvy has her falling hard.

One family. Three women. Will the lies they tell and the secrets they hide lead to more heartache or will fate bring them together before it’s too late?’

I loved this book.

This book had a fantastic feel about it. The characters and storyline were real and relatable and it gave this book an authentic and warm feeling.

I am not usually a fan of having a story told from multiple point of view but it really worked for this story.

I loved the characters in this book. Three strong women with different outlooks and experiences made for some really interesting character developments. I loved getting to see how each of these women handled the various situations that were thrown at them.

Pamela Cook writing in this book is absolutely stunning. Her sweeping descriptions have a cinematic quality to them, and her characters emotions radiate off the page. I found myself so absorbed in this wonderful story that I forgot I wasnt actually living these experiences with the characters.

I am so glad I read this book and I will be re reading it many times in the future.

The Crossroads by Pamela Cook will take you on a sweeping, emotional journey and leave you completely and utterly satisfied.
