Past and present interweave in a story that traces the Gordon family from the arrival of Scottish immigrant Hamish Gordon in the 1850s to the life of his great-granddaughter Sarah, on their family property, Wangallon, in the Australian bush.

I was lucky enough to see this debut fiction novel before it was published. An engrossing multi-generational saga set around Wangallon, the Gordon family homestead, this multi-layered story of romance, risk and family secrets by Nicole Alexander, ‘Australia’s Newest Bush Storyteller’, is highly recommended.col-md-2

How is this any different to Rachael Treasure or Fleur McDonald or Fiona Palmer?

If I read one more Australian book about a young female farmer who struggles to get her father to let her run the family farm, I’m going to get violent.

Please, guys, a little originality goes a long way!!

Personally I’m over people knocking Australian writers. It’s damn hard to get published in this country. If you don’t like the subject matter don’t read it.

We need to respect authors & readers choice, as a reader I can’t get enough of reading about Australias’ outback / farming.
