A New Start

Description of the book

In the small town of Matfield in outback Queensland, Elsie embarks on a fresh chapter of her life, leaving behind the shadows of a tough upbringing and a challenging neighbourhood. As she steps into her role as a teacher, the complexities of her past give way to the promise of exciting new beginnings. When she meets Matt, a rugged fencing contractor, a connection forms and a tentative friendship unfolds. Both carry responsibilities towards their families, and soon find they share similar interests. Yet, when they venture on a date, the fragile thread holding them together unravels. Matt wonders if he has pushed away someone he cares for. Or is there a chance to mend the friendship they once had? Will Elsie ever trust him again, or is this the end of a promising connection that fate has intricately woven?
