Love on Forrest Downs: A Sheryl McCorry Memoir 3

Front Cover
Macmillan Publishers Aus., Nov 1, 2012 - Biography & Autobiography - 288 pages

Sheryl McCorry is a woman in a million. In her bestselling memoir Diamonds and Dust and its follow up Stars over Shiralee, Sheryl shared her amazing life story from a childhood in the Top End to mustering cattle in the outback to becoming the first woman in the Kimberley to run two million-acre cattle stations.

In Love on Forrest Downs, Sheryl's inspiring story continues as she and her soulmate Michael battle to keep their cattle property running. With her characteristic down-to-earth honesty, Sheryl reveals more stories of hardship and humour from her incredible life in the bush. And with the courage we have come to admire her for, Sheryl fights on to preserve the country she so loves and protect her family from the forces that would tear them apart.

A story of resilience and triumph, here at last on Forrest Downs, Sheryl has found the happiness she so deserves.

Wonderful! I love the way Sheryl first wrote about her history and previous times then verges into writing about her current life. Once again as seen in her other books, Sheryl captures the story of her life incredibly.
