Author Rachael Johns returns with a poignant, heart-warming story of a woman who wants nothing else than to be a mum, and one who never wanted to be a mother.

Entitled The Greatest Gift, the book is about a radio host Harper Drummond who lives for her career. Every day she meets fascinating people doing extraordinary things, but has begun to wonder whether there could something more for her out there.

She’s financially secure, happily married and has a great group of friends. It’s only when she interviews one special couple that she starts to think about whether she could make a different kind of contribution.

Claire and Jasper Beggs are passionate about their thriving hot air balloon business and know they're lucky to find such joy in their work and in each other. But while Jasper has accepted that he will never be a father, Claire has found it hard to come to terms with her infertility.

She doesn't want Jasper to regret choosing her over a child in the years to come. Is there a way to give themselves a real chance at being a happy family? Can they find someone who will give them the greatest gift? Or will it come at a greater cost?

This is a poignant, heartwarming story of two women: one who wants nothing else than to be a mum, and one who never wanted to be a mother. The book retails for $32.99.

Ms Johns writes women’s fiction and romance fiction and lives in rural Western Australia. She is a  best selling ABIA winning author of The Patterson Girls, and a leading writer of contemporary relationship issues affecting women.
