The Good, the Bad, and the Emus by Donna AndrewsLife will never be the same for Meg Langslow after family secrets are revealed, introducing a whole new layer of intrigue in Donna Andrewss beloved series. Meg’s long-lost paternal grandfather, Dr. Blake, has hired Stanley Denton to find her grandmother Cordelia. Dr. Blake was reunited with his family when he saw Meg’s picture—she’s a dead ringer for Cordelia—and now Stanley has found a trail to his long-lost love in a small town less than an hours drive away. He convinces Meg to come with him to meet her, but unfortunately, the woman they meet is Cordelia’s cousin—Cordelia died several months ago, and the cousin suspects she was murdered by her long-time neighbor.
Stanley and Meg agree to help track down the killer and get justice for Cordelia. Grandfather even has perfect cover--he will come to stage a rescue of the feral emus and ostriches (escaped from an abandoned farm) that infest this town. He dashes off to organize the rescue—which will, of course, involve most of Megs family and friends in Caerphilly. But then, the evil neighbor is murdered, and not only Cordelia’s cousin but also the entire contingent of emu-rescuers, who have had conflict with the neighbor, are suspects. Only Meg and the cousin—who seems to share a lot of telling traits with Meg—can find the real killer and clear the air in The Good, the Bad, and the Emus, the newest beverage-spittingly funny installment in this uproarious series from the one-and-only Donna Andrews.
Cathy Godbold Dead: ‘Home And Away’ Meg Bowman Actress Dies, Aged 43
Meg Bowman was born in about to Julia Bowman portrayed by famous Australian iconic pop singer and actress Debra Byrne. Meg tells Blake she has three wishes to fulfil before she dies: To swim with dolphins, to ride an old-fashioned ship and to make love. Alf Stewart arranges for Blake and Meg to spend a weekend together at a hotel in "The City" where they consummate their relationship but Meg deteriorates rapidly on their return to Summer Bay. A few days later Meg dies in Blake's arms on the beach as they watch the sun rise. Blake is devastated by her death.
This would have to be one of the best storylines in Home and Away's 20 year history!!! Even through Meg Bowman was in Summer Bay for a short period of time, some people would still remember her today. I especially love the ironic beach scene where she lost her battle with Leukemia and passed away just after she saw the sunrise for the last time. Blake Dean was also great in this storyline!! I remember it like it was yesterday. It was so sad, and poor Blake.

When Home and Away first launched in Australia on January 17, , it arrived in style — taking over the schedules for the evening with a special feature-length minute episode.

The Fletcher family took centre stage in this first episode, as Tom and Pippa arrived in the Bay with their five foster children. The couple also soon took on the responsibility of local tearaway Bobby Simpson.
Blake debuted on screen during the episode broadcast on 26 July Hill was sixteen and still in school when he was cast as Blake. He had been acting "rowdy" and not attending and felt it was the right time to leave his education behind and join the cast of Home and Away. In the book Home and Away Annual , Kesta Desmond and David Nicholls describe Blake as being "the sort of boy any parent would be proud to call their son". He is "good looking and high spirited" and "loves life" so much that he lives it to the full.
