As a fan of the likes of Fiona Palmer, Rachael Johns, Charlotte Nash, Meredith Appleyard, Sarah Barrie, Nicki Edwards, Tess McCallum, Jennie Jones, Karly Lane and Fiona McCallum, I wondered how this book would stack up against such talented authors. Sarah Wasley has now become a favourite of mine as well. An excellent read, and one that will warm your heart, tear it apart, and then keep you reading late into the night. I recommend it - it's a beauty. Keep them coming Sasha!
I absolutely LOVED this. It captures station life in the remote Australian north so perfectly, and then add in a second chance romance with the kind of lifestyle where when things go wrong, lives and livelihoods can hang in the balance...Ms Wasley has done a masterful job. Australian rural romance at its best. Five stars.
So sweet. The characters are great; flawed but lovable. Tom is just the best, so mature and patient and I'm glad there was a HEA for them. Very well written and although I finished the book days ago the heartwarming feeling is still lingering.
Not usually my type of book but this thoroughly engaging Australian rural romance is extremely well written both in character and story. You will fall in love with Willow and Tom and won't be able to put the book down until you have finished it. Revommended
Brilliant and captivating story! Beautifully written, I was totally swept up into the story from the very beginning, not wanting to put it down nor wanting it to end. I fell in love with the characters, making me laugh, cry and celebrate along side them! Can't wait for the next book from this very talented author.
I read well into the early hours of the morning and as soon as I woke up, ignored all the work I had to do and powered through to the end.
Let's start with the setting. The landscapes were completely mesmerising. I hate the heat and yet I found myself yearning to be amongst the red dust and Kimberley canyons. I've never set foot on a farm but this book made me feel like I'd lived there my whole life.
This entire story revolves around the concept of humane and sustainable farming and that's a subject that should be talked about more often. It's sad that most people have no idea how our food reaches our plate and this book shows us the first steps into a better future in a way that's interesting and never forceful.
The characters, oh the characters! Banjo's drive and dedication was inspiring throughout the whole story. When it comes to love she's flawed but that only made her feel more real to me and her awareness of those faults made it impossible to hold it against her.
And Tom is the ultimate nice guy, who always does the right thing and never loses his cool and yet rather than that making him dull he's even more lovable.
I'd give this book more than 5 stars if that was an option!
I picked up this book because… I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review. I loved… everything about it. The characters were awesome Aussie farmers and the romantic tension was insane. Months on this book is still on my mind! I also learnt a lot about organic farming from this book. I disliked… that the book ended! This book reminded me of… McLeod’s Daughters. Which I am now binge watching thanks to Dear Banjo. I would recommend this book to… fans of McLeod’s Daughters and anyone who loves to read rural romance books!
