Timber Creek Station (Paperback)
Danny Dawson lives on a cattle station in the Australian outback. Usually the annual cattle muster excites Danny, 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 wide-eyed English house girl to deal with the family.
Timber Creek Station is the story of a grieving family, entrenched racism, and the surprising ways one boy--who thought he'd be stuck in one terrible place forever--can take a leap forward.
