A story of deceit, betrayal and love that proves that in the end you can choose your family.

Rosie O’Shea dreams of seeing the world. But right now the outback hotel she owns is falling down around her ears, her bank account is empty and family duty means she’s staying put.

Drought is impacting hard on Stephanie Bailey and her family. They’ve already been forced to sell off most of their cattle. The rains aren’t coming and Stephanie’s husband is becoming more and more distant.

City girl Faith Montgomery is left reeling after a shocking discovery. Determined to uncover the truth and make sense of her life, she arrives at The Crossroads Hotel but soon realises deception isn’t an easy game to play.
