Iron Junction is a rural romance novel by Charlotte Nash.
Doctor Beth Harding escapes from Sydney; away from her demanding family; away from a failed relationship; away from everything that has made a mess of her life. She escapes to Iron Junction, a small mining town in the Pilbara of Western Australia as a locum at the town’s medical centre. After a few incidents involving miners and contractors, Beth begins to wonder whether she has made the right choice. That is, until she meets Will Walker.
Will is a FIFO (Fly In, Fly Out) engineer who sees Iron Junction as yet another stop in a long line of stops that is his working life. He is attracted to Beth but the budding romance is tempered by a past that has started to haunted his current life.
Beth and Will have to confront their pasts (and futures) if their relationship is to get past its first tentative steps…
A compelling story – along with some interesting sub-plots (primarily the young Aboriginal girl who Beth befriends) and stunning landscapes – that will satisfy those who love Australian stories with heart.
