Desperate to get away from her family's expectations of success in love and in work, Dr Beth Harding leaves Sydney behind and takes a locum job at Iron Junction - a mining town in the distant Pilbara. With the mine growing at a rapid pace, the town full of contractors and tensions running high, Beth is convinced she's made a huge mistake until she meets Will, a man who shares her dreams and could make the difference between going home and staying on. For Will Walker, being born into cattle farming was never the life he wanted. He's traded a broad-brim for a hard hat and headed down the mines. Iron Junction seems like just another gig in the long road that's taking him even further from home. But in the lonely fly-in, fly-out life, he never counted on meeting Beth ...But when Beth and Will discover that the choices they make will have far-reaching consequences neither could ever have imagined, they have a decision to make. Will they be brave enough to risk loving each other despite everything that stands in their way?
