    1. 4.5 starsSuch a fantastic sequel and conclusion to The Bark Cutters. The story of Hamish Gordon and his great granddaughter Sarah Gordon continues in this dual time period tale, switching back and forth between 1908 to 1989.In the beginning chapters I was a little unsure that a sequel was a good idea as the storyline was a little uneventful thinking will this lead to anything and boy, what a great surprise was in store for me, this thoroughly enjoyable saga was packed with drama and plenty of tw [...]



    2. Great book. Couldn't put it down. Loved how she wove past/present together Look forward to more by this author



    3. This book was just weird. First of all, I think the editor totally blew this job. One major character had a name change between books, some of the family's historical stuff got muddled and there were a few other inconsistencies that just niggled. In addition, the romance that got sorted in the previous book went sideways, apparently just for dramatic effect. The introduction of a possible half brother in the previous book turned into a major debacle, especially when it turned out his mother lied [...]


    4. As the sequel to The Bark Cutters, this book develops more of the complex characters, in particular Sarah who is having difficulty accepting her passion and love for the family cattle station, Wangallon. Her love for Anthony becomes overshadowed by the terms of her grandfathers Will and her discovery of a half brother in Scotland who wants his inheritance.The story is well crafted with many twists and turns but moves at a slow pace until the conclusion.The characters are all somewhat shallow and [...]


    5. I read this knowing it was the second book, but I grabbed it as it was the only one in the library on the day! I enjoyed it, but did find it a little hard going at the beginning - probably because I hadn't read the first book in the series, AND because it was my first 'bush' book - not something I've ever read before. By the second half, I was really in to it, and the last quarter was unputdownable - absolutely thrilling in conclusion. I will be getting the first book as soon as I can!


    6. Carrying on from The Bark Cutters but would be just as good on its own. After her grandfather's death Sarah finds she has a third share of Wangallon Station. Anthony, 'the jackaroo' is by her side most of the time. The story jumps from 1908 to 1989, then at the end 1990. I hope this isn't the absolute end. Nicole Alexander has an incredible way of describing everything, including two dogs chewing on dog biscuits, the way the sky changes colour, everything. I love her books!


    7. This book was certainly a page turner for sure. I enjoyed The Bark Cutters and this was a continuation of that story. I was disappointed that the relationships that seemed so amiable in the first book were not the same in the sequel. The characters that i loved in the first were so shallow in this one but never the less I found myself unable to put the book down. I think you have to read them in order to really understand the story line though.


    8. Thoroughly enjoyable follow on from The Bark Cutters, a family saga with Scottish heritage along with the early settlement of Australia, through to the late 20th century. Nicole Alexander has woven the story of early settlement with the current generation surviving the hardships of rural life. Most enjoyable.


    9. A time slip style narrative about a family's history and connection with a farming land. Kinda not a huge fan of NA - yikes! But want to read more Australiana. Have just started in the new role of Outreach Services at work :)


    10. I had trouble getting into the first half of this book following on from the Bark cutters. It wasn't satisfying until a mystery started to unfold just past halfway. Then I was hooked. I was intrigued about a twist at the end, it wasn't explained very well.



    11. If I had not already had this in my bookshelf, I'm not sure I would have bothered with this. There were parts I found interesting, but some aspects were such that I could not really enjoy it. A main difficulty was the dizzyingly rapid switches between time periods. I generally enjoy "back then" and "now" books, but there was no time to sink into a period without being flipped back to the other - often what felt like from chapter to chapter. Yes, there were parallels that needed to be (or could b [...]
