Audible Editor Reviews

Renowned English stage and film actress Vanessa Forsythe didn't see herself relocating to Australia to become a mistress at a cattle station, but that's exactly what happens after she falls head-over-heels with handsome station owner Bren Selby in Lynne Wilding's engrossing Outback Sunset.

Life on the ranch isn't quite as idyllic as Vanessa had envisioned, and Kate Hood's adroit, emotionally charged performance captures the adversity she faces, from dealing with resentful in-laws jealous of her success to uncovering dark family secrets that surface in unexpected ways.

Publisher's Summary

When English actress Vanessa Forsythe falls in love with Bren Selby, her life changes forever. Leaving behind her London apartment, she becomes mistress of Amaroo Downs, a remote cattle station in Western Australia. Not only does Vanessa have to adjust to a vastly different lifestyle in the outback, she must establish her place in the Selby family.

Bren's brother Curtis isn't pleased to have to make allowances for the English blow-in, while his mother, Hilary, finds it hard to relinquish her hold on Amaroo. And then there's talented country singer Nova Morrison, who resents Vanessa's beauty and charm. Vanessa succeeds in balancing her acting career with her new life in the outback, but when a family secret threatens to destroy everything she's grown to love, she must face her greatest challenge yet.

    "hard to listen to"

    This one was really hard to listen to. The English accent and dialog really got on my nerves. It had a pretty good story line to it once you got into it though. But I was disppointed in the ending. It was rather long, but at the end it came to a quick conclusion. I wish the author had a least had a epilog to the ending, that would have helped.
