Captivated by the sweeping wild beauty of the land, its freedom and mystery, he sets out to make a piece of it his own. Battling drought and dingoes, bushfires and bushrangers, he lives for the moment until the past comes back to haunt him.
Wealthy and beautiful, Alexandra Hammond has every reason to disdain the penniless convict who has killed her cousin. But Alexandra is a woman with the strength to judge the truth for herself, and the determination to forge her own destiny. Together, they will take on the vast outback, burying the bitterness of the past and planting the seeds of a shining future.
Story is nice and captivating but narrators accents are awkward and the Hereford distracting. Would love to follow the series but with different narration.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed the story but these books should be read by an Aussie... somebody with a REAL Australian accent. It would have been so much better.
I enjoyed this book but found the plot and especially the ending somewhat lacking in substance. It did however have an engaging historical context that kept me engaged.
