Good listen

Well as someone that grew up down under and moved to Canada in 1966 it was a pleasure to read a rather well put together novel weaving the history of early Australia.Liked it so much I listened to the second. Glad to see you had the intestinal fortitude to kill off the husbands and feature some strong females here. There were a lot of tough women down under back then.Good on ya!
Nice job Tamara!
Look forward to the third in this series.
Recommned it to all that like a good story a bit of history and yes a bit of romance.
