Absolutely loved the story, as usual Di Morrissey created a fabulous journey within the pages. However I hated the narrator, wrong on so many levels, spoilt the whole thing for me. Her phrasing, her intonations left me cold. Any love scene or expressive moment was completely stifled by the hesitant and stiff reading.
If you enjoy Australian drama then this book is for you, it had many story lines interwoven with interesting characters. Di Morrissey seems to really understand the real Australian outback way of life. The book was bought to life through great narration.
Good character development, very descriptive and a great story. Brought a little bit of history to me from a remote part of Australia.
