Publisher's Summary

He thought he had everything until tragedy struck... Adam Ross, orphaned at nine, cherished a dream - that one day he would have land of his own. The opal fields of Coober Pedy offered his first glimpse of riches - and Nellie, a dusky beauty, provided his first taste of love...

From the western plains of New South Wales to the balmy waters of Sydney Harbour, from the grinding heat of a West Australian cattle station to the eerie desert shores of Lake Eyre, Adam was driven by his ambition. At his side stood Heather, a woman whose blonde beauty masked a calculating heart of ice. And when tragedy struck, it seemed that Adam would never realise his dream...

    "A little too long winded"

    Unfortunately for me the book was about 30% too long. I found a lot of the scenes went on for too long. I am a fan of detail but found it quite tedious in this book. I also found some of the plot and characters a little hard to believe. Spoiler alert, you never do find out about Adam's empire, it's more like Adam's Saga. Sadly it didn't quite work for me.

    "Great listen!"

    I loved this book! In fact I hated to have it end! The book is so well written, and the narrator is so good that I felt like I slipped into that world! I strongly recommend this book and narrator!

    "Excellent in every way"

    I enjoyed this book so much. It reminded me of the late Bryce Cortenay's writings. A really good story that kept me engaged from very first word until the last.

    "Awesome story!"

    Have you ever read or listened to a book you couldn't put down? This was one of those experiences for me. This is the first time I have heard a story by Evan Green. I will be looking for others. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.
