Bryce Courtney once again writes a story not to be put down. Reading you can't help but root for Jessica who is a champion in her own right. Loved the book.
I would recommend this book to anyone but especially child protection workers, lawyers and lovers of a a great story. Bryce's books remind me of Charles Dickens. Jessica like all Courtenay's books are so enjoyable. Mr. Bower is THE most talented narrator, I choose books he reads.
Bryce Courtenay has such a talent for drawing the reader into his stories, making feel so real. The way he weaves in true historical facts of the time in the land down under is a gift! Thank you Humphrey Bower for your talented narration! I completely lose myself and feel each character separately. Bravo!!

i have mixed feelings about this one after falling in love with "Tandia" and "The Power of One. "
I did not like the beginning and don't even remember why or why i kept listening but soon i found I could not put it down. What a story teller! Bryce has such a way of weaving in the magic of the native traditions and the injustices by the bloody white supremacists. i am not proud of that part of my English heritage. The story is heart breaking from beginning to end but I'm so glad i didn't stop reading. Get the tissues out!
Among the best of I've read from this author.
The true to life parts of the book. Though it was mostly fiction, I could relate it to real life in many ways. The story was told in a great way and was easy to follow. This one was hard to stop listening to. Highly recommended.
I'm not really sure to be honest.
Highly recommended book for one and all. I think adults as well as teenagers would enjoy this story. If you like Bryce Courtney's writing, then this one should definitely be on the must read / listen list.
I have discovered Bryce Courtenay and I am obsessed This is my third after a friend told me about "Power of one "
I am most thoroughly entertained.
In the process, I am also educated and my horizon expanded, but this occurs incidentally.
Mostly, a wonderful story masterfully presented
And most difficult to put down. Thank goodness for its length. I wanted it to go on and on
Another great effort by a talented author. I have now read at least half a dozen of Courtney's books and he never fails to craft and engrossing tale. Jessica is story at once courageous and heartbreaking. A great listen and Humphrey Bauer is flawless as always. Five stars
