The Willow Tree Wharf


By Léonie Kelsall

An intriguing new rural romance from the best-selling author of The River Gum Cottage.

Samantha, owner of Settlers Bridge cafe Ploughs and Pies, is short on confidence and big on regrets. Married young to fill the void left by an unhappy childhood, she still works in the same small town where she grew up, too filled with self-doubt and insecurity to ever risk spreading her wings. Yet will the end of her abusive marriage force her to start anew?

City restaurateur Pierce di Angelis knows what it is to have his career and family ripped away. However, a chance encounter with the intriguing Samantha ignites his passion, and together they concoct a plan for a destination restaurant.

But, with their personalities like oil and water, will old hurts and hidden truths destroy the new business before it’s afloat?

About the author:

Raised initially in a tiny coastal town on the Fleurieu Peninsula, then on a wheat and sheep farm in the Murraylands, Léonie is a South Australian country girl through and through. Growing up riding horses and motorbikes (and, possibly, her parents' nerves!) she developed a love of reading before she reached primary school, thanks to her parents' TV ban.

Léonie entertained a brief fantasy of moving to the big city (well, Adelaide!), but within months the lure of the open spaces and big sky country summoned her home. Now she splits her time between the stark, arid beauty of the family farm at Pallamana, and her home and counselling practice in the lush Adelaide Hills. Leonie is the bestselling author of The Farm at Peppertree Crossing, The Wattle Seed Inn, The River Gum Cottage and The Willow Tree Wharf.
