I really enjoy Cheryl Adnam's writing and have read a lot of her stories. I loved The Girl From Eureka, and this story, The Bushranger's Wife is set just a few years later than the time of the Eureka Stockade. Jack Fairweather is a character first introduced in The Girl From Eureka. We meet him on his bush ranging escapades very early in this story where Jack robs Prudence and her grandmother on their arrival to Victoria.
While I didn't quite warm to Pru like I did to Indy in Girl From Eureka, I found this a swashbuckling tale, and Jack makes a fun character. I particularly liked the scene where Jack kidnapped the Reverend - made me laugh out loud.
Adnams is brilliant at romantic Australian historical fiction, and I look forward to what she comes up with next.
