This story was my Easter read, and I have been glued to its pages every chance I've got. I've read most of Cheryl Adnams' stories and I definitely count myself amongst her fans. This in my opinion is her best novel yet. I loved the entwining of the fictional story with the true events of the Eureka Stockade. While I knew of Eureka Stockade very superficially I never really knew much about the reasons behind the stockade or the unrest between soldiers, miners and police. Now I feel I know much more about this important part of Australian history, and what some refer to as the birthplace of Australian democracy. Indy is a wonderful female lead for this story - a woman in a man's world - taking on the blokes on the goldfields. Will is kind and considerate, courageous and eventually prepared to take a stand on his convictions despite the possible consequences. Bravo on a great story, Ms Adnams.
Hugely different from her contemporary novels, Ms Adnams takes us on a journey back in time to the goldfields of Victoria and a camp called Eureka. There we meet the spirited Indy, a girl who doesn’t take life lying down, and British soldier, Will. Their story is energetic, tumultuous and filled with the horrors that faced miners back in the gold rush. An exciting insight into the history of Australia and the trials that faced the early settlers, and indigenous people, that shaped the country into what it is today. I’m enjoying this new sub-genre that explores more of Australian history, told by proud Australian authors.
Loved this so much. It’s a history lesson with a beautiful love story thrown in. I’m glad I didn’t live back then, life was so hard. I kept trying to guess what was going to happen, I was wrong most of the time. It’s a must read.
Just finished Cheryl Adnams, The Girl from Eureka, and loved it. A great Historical novel. Great characters, loved Indy, a strong Independent Woman who isn’t afraid to speak here mind. I highly recommend Cheryl’s book to everyone. 🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅🦅
