Sometimes, destiny can’t be left to chance.  

Three years ago in a hospital in the Snowy Mountains, Alf Hall stood by while the woman he loved re-united with her wayward husband. These days, Raine and Teddy are his best friends, their children call him Uncle Alf. 

Now Alf stands by as his days slip into loveless tedium. 

June Lovell, a nurse, witnessed the anguish in Alf’s eyes. A spark flared between them. But life moved on. Pushed by a near tragedy into searching for a new start, Alf returns to the mountains. He tells himself finding June is not the reason he’s chosen this particular place to be. Which is probably for the best. Because it seems that June has found the man of her dreams.  

Can the stars be made to align this time? Or will life move on again?
