Move to the country for $1 a week.
Dulili is suffering a people drought. Over the years more people have moved away than have arrived to stay in this old New South Wales farming town, and now only a handful of young families and elderly residents are left. The locals put a plan into action to entice newcomers: offering the town’s empty houses to newcomers from anywhere in Australia. Who could resist renting a beautiful homestead for a dollar a week?
There’s nothing left for Adele Devereux in Sydney: no job, no relationship, no hope, and no diagnosis for her shy, uncommunicative daughter Ali. So she packs her bags, takes her meagre savings, and moves her small family to the country. She never expects to meet Tom Wade, a man facing his own hopeless situation, but whose kindness reaches her daughter in an unexpected friendship. As the small town of Dulili attempts to regenerate itself, Adele finds herself drawn further in to the community – and into her attraction to Tom. Tom is not back in Dulili to build a relationship. He’s there to heal wounds, help his grandmother, and make new plans. Plans that don’t come with his grandmother’s new tenant, part of the Dulili dollar scheme. But as Adele and Ali effortlessly work their way into his thoughts and his heart, he realises that there are two crucial elements that he left out of his long-term plans – the chance to find love and renewed hope for the future.
A Heart Stuck On Hope by Jennie Jones
A town in need of a major revitalization, comes up with an idea to bring in new townsfolk by offering housing for just $1 a week.
Adele is broke and needs a fresh start for herself and her daughter. She jumps at the chance to have a home of her own for only $1. Little did she know she was going to fall for this town hook, line and sinker.
Tom is struggling to regain his business footing after a tragic accident leaves his best friend hospitalized and his business in ruins. Tom is unsure about this plan of his grandmother but figures he’s going to keep an eye on her new tenant just in case.
Sparks fly and chemistry soars, but will their attraction be enough or with circumstance and life scars tear them apart?
Adele is a caring, incredible mother that would do anything to see her daughter happy. Tom has a tough shell to crack and Adele’s daughter seems to have what it takes to show Adele there is more to this surly man.
A Heart Stuck On Hope is a sweet, endearing, love story. My first read by Jennie Jones, this won't be my last.
