The Only Love We Keep

After a terrible tragedy in his life, solicitor Jake Anderson moves to Southport near Brisbane, just before the opening of the new railway, to begin a new life. Southport, a new township north of Brisbane, seems like the ideal place for him.

On his first day in the town, he rescues a young woman and her two brothers from an accident in their buggy. While both feel immediate attraction, it takes Jake quite some time to decide what do about beautiful Caroline Arnett. Does he have the courage to love again? Will she have to be content with just loving him as a friend?
