The Bateman Family Novels

The Bateman Family

The Batemans are a typical Aussie single-parent family living in the city. Conscientious Tim is the eldest, followed by fun-loving Clare and mischievous Dan. Quiet, sensitive Beth is the youngest. Between them the siblings try to fill the emptiness they feel deep inside, never realising that a small, picturesque farm on the outskirts of Kamira Creek holds the answers to questions they didn’t know to ask. 

The seemingly quiet farm with sheep grazing in the paddocks and a small creek running through the middle, hides years of secrets. The Cairn family living there, along with Aunty Joy who lives in the cottage down the road, have been praying for the Batemans for years, neither family knowing just how deeply their hearts and lives will become entwined.
