Product description

Product Description

Inspired by a real newspaper story from 1930, An Uncommon Woman is an epic tale of duty, ambition, prejudice and love, from the pen of bestselling author Nicole Alexander.

A new world is waiting for her . . .

It's 1929, and the world is changing. Cars are no longer the privilege of the rich. Hemlines are rising. Movies are talking. And more and more women are entering the workforce.

For Edwina Baker, however, life on her family's farm in Western Queensland offers little opportunity to be anything other than daughter, sister and, perhaps soon, wife.

But Edwina wants more. She wants to see the world, meet new people, achieve things. For while she has more business sense than her younger brother, it will be Aiden who one day inherits the farm.

Then the circus comes to town. Banned from attending by her father, Hamilton, Edwina defiantly rides to the showground dressed as a boy. There she encounters two men who will both inadvertently alter the course of her life: pastoralist Mason with his modern city friends; and Will, a labourer who also dreams of escape.

And when the night ends in near-disaster, this one act of rebellion strikes at the heart of the Baker family. Yet it also offers Edwina the rare chance to prove herself in a man's world. The question is, how far is she prepared to go, and how much is she prepared to risk?

I had not previously read one of Nicole Alexander's books. But I thought I knew what to expect - a stock-standard Aussie-battler-in-the-bush story complete with dust and heat. Those things are present but there is so much more to An Uncommon Woman. Alexander's heroine is non-cliche and likeable, the circus elements of the story quaint and original, her red-herrings far too believable, and the ending unexpected and satisfying. I will certainly look out for her books in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Australian historical fiction! 28 June 2017
By Brenda Telford - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Edwina Baker and her younger brother Aiden were working the farm together, although it was a rare occurrence. Edwina was sick of hanging around the farmhouse; she needed to be busy and applying her thoughts to their land, as well as acting on them was what she wanted to do. But her father Hamilton was a strict and ruthless man, moreso since his wife and children’s mother had passed away. He refused to let Edwina leave the farm unless accompanied – he also refused to listen to her ideas at improving their land. She was intensely frustrated as well as horrified that Aiden appeared to agree with their father.

Therefore when the circus was in town, Edwina defied her father and, dressed as a boy, rode her horse to see the event. But it was while she was in attendance that she met the two men who would feature in her future in a big way. While she needed to hide her visit to town from her father, she feared what would happen should he find out…

As Edwina continued to put her ideas to her father, Hamilton was having troubles of his own. His anger and displeasure at his daughter continued to irritate – but it was what was happening in his background which was building the resentment in his heart. What would happen in the family’s future? Would Edwina be able to prove her ability and worth? She could only try…

An Uncommon Woman by Aussie author Nicole Alexander is another epic historical fiction novel which I thoroughly enjoyed. Set in 1929 and into the 1930s in the dusty, drought stricken land of Western Queensland, the vivid descriptions of the land, the prickly pear and the rivalries between property owners is all too real. With Aboriginal stockmen, men searching for work that just wasn’t available, the harsh living on the land – all combined to make this another winner for this author. I have no hesitation in recommending An Uncommon Woman highly.
