At first I was dubious about how this story was unfolding but, as it progressed, I became more engrossed. I found it to be a great story about the great Australian outback.
The story unfolded very satisfyingly and it was good listening. In particular, it satisfied my yearning for tales of rural and remote Australia.
I don't recall listening to Kate Hood previously but this was a good performance.
There was no one great moment but the story involved a series of events that reflected life in Australia, particularly the outback.
I have been a little ambivalent about Di Morrissey as an author, I have read only a couple of titles and they seemed a bit predictable. And this one is too. And yet the characters in all her books come to life for me and she is a great story-teller. I feel like a child wanting "happy ever after" endings which she seems to deliver but, more than than, she tells her stories in interesting ways. I expect I shall now read (or listen to) more of her many books.
I really enjoyed the story and the depiction of outback Australia. Maxim Topov lives in a world all his own.
