At the giddy height of resources boom, a mine opens in tiny outback Hopetoun, Western Australia. This remote and beautiful place will change forever, uniting three very different women with its promise of new beginnings.
City slicker Jasmine has moved west reluctantly, to save her marriage. Miranda, the mine-manager's wife, is fighting to be her own woman – ever if it means adopting a course that could ruin the mine. And Brigid is struggling to keep her family together despite her husband's crippling debts.
In a town full of strangers, the three women join forces to open the Boomtown Café, sharing tears and laughter, frustrations and dreams. Amid the chaos and greed of a modern-day gold rush, they discover that true friendship may be the only thing that lasts . . .
