Sarah Whitaker learned early in life what it feels like to lose those that you love. Having lost and never known her mother; Sarah, in a very real sense, loses her father also. Although he is not physically dead until she is eleven, he is unable to truly cope with her mother’s death. Her father lives on a Australian ranch and visits his daughter on occasion. The raising of Sarah falls on the shoulders of her Aunt.
After years of wishing to live with her father her wish comes true upon receiving the request from him to join him on his large sheep farm in New Wales. Sarah learns immediately upon her arrival that her father has been killed and she is now the heiress of the largest sheep farm in New Wales which is populated by “petty criminals exiled from England” prisons.
Years later she meets Daniel Burton, a man who had been sentenced to death because of his involvement with horse racing. Thanks to a loving family member he is given a reprieve and exiled to New Wales, Australia. Here is given the opportunity to become a better man and put his mistakes behind him. The trick comes in maintaining his hard earned friendship and budding romance with his neighbor, Sarah Whitaker.
This story has been very well written. As a reader, I had a hard time becoming “involved” with the characters. The story line moved along at a very slow pace. Although you could feel for the characters in the book, I found it difficult to become engrossed in the story-line itself.
I am giving this book 4 stars. It has the potential to be a 5 Stars book, it’s just missing the ability to bring the reader in and actually feel the emotions of her characters.
*This book is on loan to me. I am not obligated to post a Positive review. This is my honest review.
