Loved it. Intriguing story, read in such a way that we were unaware of the narrator, but connected with the characters. Intriguing and engaging story.

Enjoyed this book, but didn't find it as engaging as Di's winderful books normally are.

Claire McIntyre has it all: an adoring husband, a bubbly best friend, a chic townhouse, and a high-flying corporate career in the city. But somehow she's forgotten what really makes her happy. After receiving tragic news, closely followed by the loss of her job, Claire's world is thrown into turmoil. She is then forced to reconsider everything that matters to her. Claire soon finds herself back at the very place she's been running - from the family property. A place where the bush telegraph exposes every secret, where reputations are hard won and easily lost, and where fortune is as fickle as the weather.

The story was a little predictable and the main character somewhat high strung and irritating. The narration was good. Hard at times to believe there weren't more than one person reading. This performance made an otherwise average novel a good listen.

It is the spring of 1943.... Millie's world is about to change forever. Soon after the break of day, Bump will become Millie’s husband. And then, if all goes as planned, they will leave the rain-soaked fields of Mississippi and head for the wilds of the Colorado Rockies. As Millie tries to forget a dark secret, she hasn’t yet realized how drastically those past experiences will impact the coming days. For most of Millie’s life, being free felt about as unlikely as the mountains moving. But she’s about to discover that sometimes in life, we are given second chances, and that the only thing bigger than our past is the future.

Having so much enjoyed 'Into the free', we were excited to discover this sequel! Like catching up with old friends again, When mountains move took us once again back into Millies world where her story once again held us to the very end. These two books, listened to in the correct order are well worth enjoying. For us the miles slipped by as we travelled across Australia while sharing life in the US.

Julie can paint a clear picture such that we were drawn in to the story right to the end. We got to know, love and even despise the characters, feel the pains, share the joys and even see a sunset so beautifully painted with her words. A real talent, an engaging story that we happily recommend. Luci does a wonderful job of narration as well, complimenting the undoubted talent of Julie. One of our favourites!!
