New Yorker Marries Australian Aborigine

I loved this real life story of two amazing people. As the
back cover explains:

A high-flying Wall Street career woman looking for something more in her life quits her job and goes bush - to outback Australia.

One New Year's Eve in Kalgoorlie a chance meeting with a charismatic Aboriginal leader lights a spark that will change the course of her life forever.

After a whirlwind long-distance courtship, they marry in a desert creek bed and she spends her wedding night in an outback cave on a mountain, the first of many changes the New Yorker will have to face. The next is her husband's unique wedding gift, a tour of the country and its people - an unforgettable journey of discovery that marks the beginning of Diana Williams new life.

This is an extraordinary story of a woman who followed her heart and discovered a new country and culture, the realities of a 'mixed marriage', the joy of an unexpected child - and a love that crossed boundaries.

HORIZON is WHERE HEAVEN and EARTH MEET is a powerful, inspiring and timely love story.

This book was published by BANTAM a few years ago. I hope you can find it in a bookshop somewhere.
