It's 1963 and Sally Mitchell, the well-bred daughter of a wealthy New Zealand sheep farmer, is on her way to England with her friend Pru. When the young women stop over in Sydney, their plans go awry. Sally impulsively takes a job as a governess at Barra Creek, and when the mail plane that flew her there takes off, she finds herself left in a different world: one dominated by the overpowering John Monroe and his strict and proper wife, Lorna. Here, Sally's life changes forever. The challenges of coping with her three young charges, wild stockmen, the heat and the wet, brumby musters, and cattle rushes all pale beside a great passion, a great loss, and a gruesome death. Only Lorna knows the truth of the death and of a terrible injustice. Now, in 2003, she searches for the former governess to finally set things right and share her horrific secret.



"Kate Hood's delivery is energetic and fast paced. Her characterizations bring an edgy realism to Morrissey's rugged cast. When Sally finds her perfect man, Hood is all fuzzy coquettishness, and when he turns out to be not so perfect, her voice drips with disillusionment. Hood's expressive interpretation adds substance to Morrissey's romantic adventure." ( AudioFile)

Ich hab gelacht, geweint, war geschockt und konnte nicht aufhören mir diese mitreißende Geschichte vorlesen zu lassen. Wie schon bei anderen Di Morrissey Büchern auf Englisch, mag ich, dass die Leserin den australischen Slang spricht und die typischen australischen Begriffe verwendet werden, sehr authentisch! Tolles Buch!!!!
