Lyrical, passionate and heartwarming, Under Southern Skies is the uplifting story of a young woman determined to make a life for herself in the sweeping Australian outback.
Cate Perry's future is bright. She's learning about life on the land, and has just completed her first solo flight over the vast Northern Territory cattle station she calls home. And she's falling in love – with handsome, gentle Alf. Then a tragic accident changes everything.
Cate escapes to Tamworth, where she stumbles into a singing career. And just when she least expects it, Alf walks back into her life. Can they save the love they shared?
Lyric and heartwarming, from the dusty cattle stations of the Northern Territory to the vibrant Tamworth music scene, Under Southern Skies tells of the determination of a passionate young woman and perfectly captures the spirit of the land.
