Dulili is suffering a people drought. Over the years more people have moved away than have arrived to stay in this old New South Wales farming town, and now only a handful of young families and elderly residents are left. The locals put a plan into action to entice newcomers: offering the town's empty houses to newcomers from anywhere in Australia.  Who could resist renting a beautiful homestead for a dollar a week?

Newly divorced Bea Elliot needs Honey Hill House for more than just a quaint project – restoring a ramshackle old farm house to a successful B&B will prove to her family – and herself – that she is strong enough to make a go of things on her own. She doesn't need anyone to help her, even if the guy next door is remarkably obliging, delightfully generous, and terribly charming.

Experience has taught him not to get involved with out–of–towners. Even if this out–of–towner is surprisingly resilient, unexpectedly tough, and unpredictably fond of local football.

Good fences make good neighbours, but in Dulili, it seems like barriers might instead be breaking down…
