The Red Heart

Who said opposites attract? Someone who never put that to the test.

There was still an element of frontier when Kathy Sullivan scored a flying job in Alice Springs in the mid-1980s. She was more than ready for the challenge.

If she felt unsure at times, it didn’t show. She was determined to prove herself the right woman for the job. Why then did Alex Woodleigh do his best to undermine her whenever they crossed paths? How could she know who she replaced? That was the trouble with small towns; the grapevine worked well, but some information was always tightly held.

Heat came from unexpected sources, and Kathy was shocked at how she reacted. Not half as shocked when she realised that she and her aircraft were about to become a pile of crumpled metal. Her heart was about to be smashed to pieces.
