About Marianne Delaforce

Marianne Delaforce is an adventurous, brave, take-no-prisoners kind of woman with a big heart. Marianne grew up on a dairy farm at Telegraph Point, NSW. She has raised two sons and has two small grandchildren.

Marianne will have a go at anything if it interests her and believes if you’re not happy and don’t like what you’re doing, don’t whinge about it, change it! She can drive a road train, ride a motorbike, likes skydiving and bungy jumping.

She has worked as a shop assistant, waitress, axeman on the Forest Commission, sales rep, remote camp cook, furniture removalist and truck driver. She has owned and operated a transport company employing forty staff driving twelve trucks out of two depots, one each in NSW and NT. She has also owned and operated a Mediterranean restaurant on the riverbank of Port Macquarie. Over the past thirty-five years her real passion has been singing and entertaining. She currently works as a marriage celebrant, produces videos and sings.

She sold her company and restaurant three years ago, packed up and took off on the adventure of a lifetime to find herself again on the “Free, Fabulous and 50 Tour”. Marianne has travelled Australia with her trusty blue heeler dog, Elly, by her side. Towing an off-road caravan with her Land Rover, they have made their way around Australia twice in that time, through the Gulf of Carpentaria, up to Cape York, across the Nullarbor, and have traversed both The Gibb River Road and The Outback Way, Australia’s longest shortcut.

I loved getting lost in this story. Makes it all the more amazing knowing the characters are real. Thanks to Marrianne for sharing this book. Life happens and the strong make the best of a situation which Loretta certainly did. I cant wait to read the next book and find out what happens to Rose!

I love this kind of romance story line
Easy to loose yourself for a few hours and totally enjoy a book. Think of the person you know and relating to there lives sad and happy times. Can not wait for the sequels to this book

The Promise Land By Marianne Delaforce.
I don't normally read romance novels but The Promise Land was different. The romance between the characters was not smutty but romantically lovely. As someone who in the past has been through domestic violence I found I could relate to Loretta with her struggles, hopes and dreams. From start to finish each chapter kept me guessing plus silently wishing. I am looking forward to Book 2 in the series. A beautiful read :)
