This stunning debut novel from Australian author Lucy Christopher generated considerable buzz for its nonstop suspense and breathtaking imagery. Sixteen-year-old Gemma is on a layover at Bangkok Airport, headed to Vietnam with her parents. Then the vaguely familiar Ty drugs Gemma’s drink and steals her away. Her head swirling in confusion, Gemma soon finds herself fighting to survive in the unforgiving Outback.

I enjoyed this book will read it again the kidnapping is a bit weak and you can find fault but I loved this story set in the Australian outback and 3-4 weeks after reading this book Im still thinking about it:-))
Actually, it is Jennifer, not Michael. I enjoy a variety of books but am drawn to romantic historical fiction with a Christian message.
This book was very entertaining but I felt like it just stopped. There was no ending, all these unanswered questions and it is over. The author just leaves so much to your own imagination. I felt disappointed and wanted at least another chapter.
This book kept my attention and the narrator read beautifully. It was just the right length and probably would have become tedious if it was any longer. It did get me thinking about the relationship between captor and captive.
A more interesting storyline
The excruciatingly slow pace
Had to stop listening since podcasts are a million times more interesting
I bought this book this little knowledge of the story. I loved the story and the way it was told and the performance so much that a year later I listen to it all over again. As I finish this book for the second time I was still sad to see the characters go…I will be looking for more Lucy Christopher books!
I purchased this thinking that it would be one or both of the above and it is definitely not either. Don't get me wrong, this is an excellent romance story and is perfectly balanced when it comes to description of the world and keeping a steady pace. But do not read this if you want a surprise ending or constant suspense,you will be disappointed.
Expecting a lot more from this story than I got. Avoid this book unless you suffer from insomnia.
better narrators out there
no! it'd be a boring movie
I read the book twice and decided to listen the audiobook. I can't get enough of this story, it's just so different than your typical "love story". I feel like there is so much more left unsaid...and that by the end of the story was when it was just getting really interesting. Hope the another will continue the story.
I was really excited to start this book, it was everything I am into. The first little bit I was pretty hooked but once they got to Australia it just went FLAT. I have never forgotten about a boom I was reading before. It's not like I hated it, I still liked it and wanted to finish but just didn't have that NEED like I usually do.
