The Break


By Deb Fitzpatrick

The south-west coast is the kind of place people escape to. Unless you have lived there all your life, in which case, you long to get away.

Rosie and Cray chuck in their city jobs for Margaret River while Liza, Ferg and Sam have been there forever, working the family farm. Under pressure from developers the families unite against change. But when a natural disaster strikes, change is inevitable.
