per ardua ad astra


'The only thing that masked the silent pause in the somewhat loud, hearty chatter of his work mates was the music blaring from ‘The Finny’ jukebox. Christina Aguilera’s ‘Candy Man’ in full swing as one hundred and fifty pairs of eyes were now focused solely on her.'


Indianna Waters is a country girl at heart just trying to survive in the City. So when she announces to her friends one day that she will be heading to Outback WA to work as a Remote Area Nurse, no-one bats an eyelid.


Indianna's new home will be a remote Indigenous community of 400 people, about ten hours drive from Port Hedland, out past Karijini National Park and near the Western Australian border. A short-term, single-post nursing opportunity, where the food truck comes once a fortnight, and the Doctor, once a month!


Fortunately, Indianna is made of the tough stuff, on the outside that is. On the inside, regrets of her past are eating her up inside. She needs to do something to right the wrongs and to prove herself.


Nursing a Western Australian remote Indigenous community could have been just what the Doctor ordered, if only tall, dark and intense Big Russ hadn’t thrown a spanner in the works.
