A Man in Uniform
4.00 · 1 ratings · Published: Jul 6th, 2006 |
Melanie Bodie has completed her University studies in landscape architecture, and is deciding what to do next when circumstances at home change her future. She finds herself back in the small Australian town she wanted to get away from, and again living with her dominating father. Her father and brothers are trying to manipulate her future. Finally she cannot take it any longer.
Fleeing to New Zealand, she not only meets a fascinating man but also is given her first real landscaping job to complete. This man is already engaged, but despite this a relationship begins to develop. Melanie finds herself falling in love with the type of man she had vowed never to consider. She works hard to complete her landscape project, and as this is finished she is invited to go to Aukland for a sightseeing trip. It is here that she realises that he is the man for her, and that she loves him.
But fate takes another turn, and Melanie becomes the victim of retaliation, as well as being urgently needed again. She rushes back to Australia, and then back to the small town where she is yet again under the influence of her father. She feels trapped, and uncertain of what to do - should she follow her heart, even though circumstances have changed? Should she go off overseas, or should she just give in to her father's plans? She feels heartsick and alone, realising she cannot have the man she really wants.
