At eight months pregnant, Raine shouldn’t be on a jolting bus crawling through melting snow on a mountain track searching for her husband. He might not want to be found. She might not want to find him.

Raine didn’t plan to marry Teddy. His moods turn on a hairpin, he’s hot-headed and easily offended. But he’s the father of her unborn child, and in 1950s Australia being an unwed mother isn’t an option. Raine believes it just might work, that the troubles and tragedies of the past two years are behind her.
Then Teddy abandons her.
Teddy’s childhood mate, Alf, wavers between indignation and hope. Is this his chance? Or do old loyalties run too deep?
A hurting Raine determines to track Teddy down. When she finds him – if she finds him – she’ll understand at last who her true ‘keeper’ is.

“Keepers” is one of the most exhilarating books I’ve read in ages. Cheryl Burman is a gifted writer whose words flow easily while painting extraordinarily evocative scenes. The vitality in her writing is captivating. Goodreads review
