“This novel is a Pop Culture Classic and it easy to understand why. The characters are well-developed and become close to your heart, the plot is compelling and cumpulsively readable, and the historical facts about Australia are interesting.
I loved it and would recommend it to all - the love story between Meggie and Ralph will always haunt me. I have to admit, once these characters grew older and the novel was taken over by the younger characters - I was ready for the novel to be done.
Somehow, the author catches time in this novel and the sense of when generations fade and new ones take over - the bittersweetness of that. Please, read!”
