Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Kate Webster is a lovable larrikin who likes to play hard now and worry about the consequences later. At nineteen, she can't help mucking up the opportunities life gives her. Rocked by the death of her mother, she takes on a dare at one of Australia's wildest rural social events - a Bachelors & Spinsters country ball. It's a dare that will change her life forever... In a drunken haze, wearing a red dress and work boots, she sets off to win her bet and 'scalp' seventeen-year-old farm boy Nick Mc Donnell. After the ball, with her ticket booked to leave Tasmania for agricultural college, she is ready to start an exciting new life away from her grieving father and the pressures of the family farm. Then she unexpectedly discovers she is pregnant. Years on, with her toddler Nell by her side, it's time for Kate to return home to face the music, and the father of her child.
