This is an auction for MAN DROUGHT by Rachael Johns.

''If you haven't picked up one of the many rural lit novels on the market yet, then perhaps you should start with Rachael Johns! A tear - jerking, moving love story set in a small country town, bound to have you anxiously awaiting another title by this Australian author.''
- Australian Bookshelf reviews:

"Imogen Bates is tired of being the widow. Wanting to get away from Perth and the painful memories of her old life with late husband Jamie, she buys a run - down pub in small rural town Gibson's Find, hoping to start a new, different kind of life for herself. Sheep and crop farmer Gibson Black always dreamed of a family like his grandfather (Charlie) reminisces about. However when his city - chick wife fled his farm and his life, Gibson soured on the institution of marriage, vowing never to enter it again. He likes living in Gibson's Find because it suffers a severe female drought. However, Imogen has plans for the town...and him. Can Imogen convince Gibson, and herself, to love again?"

"FIVE STARS!! I had no idea that I loved rural romance until I read Rachael Johns. I assumed they were all still about dusty boots, fixing fences, and silent broody men... and I was wrong! This story make me nostalgic due the bush in a way I haven't been for years, mainly due to how warmly Aussie it is. Such a delight to know there is an author our there who's as justifiably proud of our heritage as most Americans are. Not to mention the warmth and uniquely Aussie humour with which she writes. Absolutely loved it :)"
