About this ebook

Down Outback Roads is an enthralling rural love story, about family, community and allowing yourself a second chance.

Kree Garrett’s younger brother Seth is all the family she has left, so when he goes missing while working in the Australian outback, she races from America to join in the search.

To everyone’s relief, Seth is rescued by local volunteers and Kree finds, in an abandoned historic Cobb & Co Coach House, the opportunity to thank the community she’s fallen in love with. But it isn’t only the town she’s fallen for.

Ewan Mackenzie has given up everything for his brother’s family, but he can never give enough to assuage his guilt at what happened one dark night, years ago . . . Ewan knows he doesn’t deserve happiness, however with Kree he finds it hard to keep his distance.

Can Kree and Ewan leave the tragedies of their pasts behind long enough to find a future together?

Down Outback Roads is the follow on novel from Beneath Outback Skies, with cameos from several of the supporting characters from that novel - however it is not necessary to have read Beneath Outback Skies to enjoy this book! Author Allissa Callen has once again woven a magical story set in the Australian outback, jam packed full of lovable characters, stunningly described scenery and a real sense of the camaraderie of Aussie towns she obviously knows so well. Lovely book - you won't put it down!!

About the author

Alissa Callen currently lives on a small slice of rural Australia in central western New South Wales. She is the author of two novels, Beneath Outback Skies and Down Outback Roads.

When Alissa isn’t writing she plays traffic controller to four children, three dogs, two horses and one renegade cow who really does believe the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. After a childhood spent chasing sheep on the family farm, Alissa has always been drawn to remote areas and small towns, even when residing overseas.

Once a teacher and a counsellor, she remains interested in the life journeys that people take. She is also partial to historic homesteads and gardens and has been known to drive hours to visit an open-garden.

She draws inspiration from the countryside around her, whether it be the brown snake at her back door or the resilience of bush communities in times of drought or flood.
