Timber Creek Station

Danny Dawson lives on a cattle station in the Australian outback. The whole station is preparing for the annual cattle muster, and normally Danny would be bursting with excitement. But everything is different now. Because Danny's beloved older brother died in an accident last year, and nobody will talk about it. Because his teenage sister is pregnant and won't tell anyone who the father is. Because his mother can't cope with any of it and has hired a house girlùa wide-eyed English backpacker named Liz who has never even seen a cow milked before ùto deal with the family. Liz doesn't understand how to cook hearty meals, how to clean laundry, and especially why the station's Aboriginal workers are treated as second-class citizens. Liz helps Danny see that the way things have always been is not the way they should always be.Timber Creek Station is the story of a grieving family, entrenched racism, and the surprising ways one boyùwho thought he'd be stuck in one terrible place foreverùcan
