A beautiful and sensitively written book.
February 15, 2016 by Christine Ramsay
I couldn't wait to read this latest book by Jan Reid after having been captivated by her previous books in the series. I felt I was meeting with old friends as past characters once more came to life. The story captures interest from the very first page as it weaves the lives of two close friends, Libby and Jimba who are separated for many years after an unpleasant childhood incident. Eventually Libby is drawn back to Baron's Reach to help her family and with the need to find out what really happened to drive her away all those years ago. As she once again meets Jim and learns the truth they both realize their feelings for each other are becoming more than just friendship.
The history of Baron's Reach is fascinating and the portrayal of Libby's family's endeavor and spirit is inspiring. I loved reading the dreaming stories which Libby 's grandmother and now Libby herself is passing on and the descriptions of the wild life of the area held me enthralled.
This is such a beautiful and sensitively written book which I'm sure many will enjoy reading and the additional historical information at the end certainly helps the reader to understand more about the problems the Aboriginal people faced.
