The Stockmen | [Rachael Treasure]

The Stockmen

Rosie Highgrove-Jones grows up hating her double-barrelled name. She dreams of riding out over the wide plains of the family property, working on the land. Instead she's stuck writing the social pages of the local paper. Then a terrible tragedy sparks a series of shocking revelations for Rosie and her family. As she tries to put her life back together, Rosie throws herself into researching the haunting true story of a 19th century Irish stockman who came to Australia and risked his all for a tiny pup and a wild dream.

Publisher's Summary

Rosie Highgrove-Jones grows up hating her double-barrelled name. She dreams of riding out over the wide plains of the family property, working on the land. Instead she's stuck writing for the social pages of the local paper. Then a terrible tragedy sparks a series of shocking revelations for Rosie and her family. As she tries to put her life back together, Rosie throws herself into researching the haunting true story of a 19th century Irish stockman who came to Australia and risked his all for a tiny pup and a wild dream. Is it just coincidence when Rosie meets a sexy Irish stockman of her own? And will Jim help her realise her deepest ambitions - or will he break her heart?

The Stockmen moves effortlessly between the present and the past to reveal a simple yet hard-won truth: that both love and the land are timeless.

    "Great Story"

    I loved this story. It was realistic the characters voices were great. I will be listening to more of Rachael Treasure books as soon as I can. She even mention one of my great great great etc Uncles Cuthbert Fetherstonhaugh, I was quite shocked when I heard the name I had to rewind and make sure. And he was a hell of a horseman.

    "Good Aussie Read"
    Where does The Stockmen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I found the narrator very good and one of the better audio books that I have listened to.

    "Realistic"

    Yet another amazing book by Rachel Treasure. I love that she understands exactly what it is like to live on the land an be a daughter who is so often overlooked when it comes to the property, but whose guts and determanition brings them all they want. Well done cant wait for her next book.
