‘Brumby’s Run’

Brumby’s Run was released by Penguin Books Australia in July 2012. It is a story about love, mistaken identity and the fabled wild horses of Victoria’s high country.

A blissful carefree summer beckons for Samantha Carmichael. But her world is turned on its head when she learns she’s adopted – and that she has a twin sister, Charlie, who is critically ill.

While Charlie recovers in hospital, Sam offers to look after Brumby’s Run, her sister’s home high in the Victorian Alps. Within days city girl Sam finds herself breaking brumbies and running cattle with the help of handsome neighbour Drew Chandler, her sister’s erstwhile boyfriend.

A daunting challenge soon becomes a wholehearted tree change as Sam begins to fall in love with Brumby’s Run – and with Drew. But what will happen when Charlie comes back to claim what is rightfully hers?

Set among the hauntingly beautiful ghost gums and wild horses of the high country, Brumby’s Run is a heartfelt, romantic novel about families and secrets, love and envy and, most especially, the bonds of sisterhood.

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    Any chance of getting a signed copy when it’s released?
    Beautiful property, cheeky mare (?) that obviously sees herself as part of the family, professional turned writer – and Aussie too. Think I may have found a kindred spirit.
    Good luck with the editing and the launch of the book.

    • Hi Linda,
      Absolutely! I’d be honoured to sign a copy for you. And you’re right, my stockhorse mare doesn’t just think she’s part of the family, sometimes she thinks she runs the whole show – along with her pair of pony sidekicks! Thanks for your kind wishes, and your great blog.

  2. Meant to say it before but I am so in love with your cover, Jennifer. An absolute stunner.

    As you can imagine, being a horsey kinda gal myself, I’m very much looking forward to reading Brumby’s Run. Not enough of these books in the world!

    • Thanks Cathryn,
      I love your intelligent-looking heroine. Somehow, a dark-haired girl without a cowboy hat, adds a real touch of class.

      I was very much hoping for that with mine, so am pretty happy. Would have preferred the horses in the foreground though!

  3. I read “Currawong Creek” first then searched our library and found this one, another great read a bit of a tearjerker at the end, I couldn’t put this one down and am now eagerly awaiting May for your new release “Billabong Bend” .
