The adventures of the Fitzgeralds of Fellowship Farm continue in volume five of the series, containing books 13 to 15.
In Book 13 the children lovingly nurture Joey until he is ready to return to the bush. It turns out that saying goodbye is not easy for the children or for Joey. Leezah’s junior youth group find that service is fun and rewarding at times, and at other times it can be boring, cold, and difficult! Leezah is pushed out of her comfort zone and has to draw on her faith and courage.
In Book 14 the family flies to Sydney where they are showered with love by their cousins, and also learn the hard way that moderation is an important virtue.
In Book 15 the family returns to Fellowship Farm and finds itself faced with a crisis. Rommy and Flip go missing, the rain keeps falling, and it seems the farm is at risk of being washed away!
