This isn't my favourite of McCullough's work, but I was swept up in the fiction and history fused together into a wonderful story. I have a love affair with Australia and devour most any bit of fiction set in the lucky country. While some of the plots twists and turns were predictable, I enjoyed the story immensely.
At its ceenter is Alexander Kinross a young man from Scotland only a boilermakers apprentice and a godless rebel. Then he writes from Australia to mummond his bride and his relatives realize that he has made a fortune in the gold fields and anow is a man a rich man. So goes the story of his 16 year old bride to be and discovers that he reples her. Great story!!!!!!
From the best selling author of the Thorn Birds,a picture of the rich in Australia who made their money the hard way and then had to live with it.
Once again in the outback of Australia, we have adventure & romance in the gold fields as settlers strive to build a new life.
I liked this one much better than the Thorn Birds.
A disappointment after The Thorn Birds and Morgan's Run. The last third was interesting and moved along, but the first 2/3 was long and slow which spoiled the story for me.
I LOVED this book! They should make a movie of it.
