Betrayed by her fiance, freelance musician Primrose Pretty escapes to Nirvana, her brother Danny’s rural Australian commune. Although determined to live the simple life, Primrose finds the primitive conditions and slack attitude of the “residents” stressful. Her awkward relationship with her brother creates even more problems and reopens family wounds she’d sought to heal. Danny, with secrets of his own, wishes interfering Primrose would leave.
Tom Fairbrother, owner of the flourishing property next door, offers an attractive alternative to the commune. After a passionate night with him, Primrose is confused. Is he merely a distraction, or is what she feels real and everlasting?
Primrose seems to reciprocate Tom’s attraction but flirting is one thing and he knows a high maintenance, single minded, inflexible city woman is not a long term prospect as a hardworking farmer’s wife.
With no future to offer her, how can he ask her to stay?
