Overview

Turn-of-the-century Australia holds one of the world's most magnificent settings for Book One of the new Australian series. From the jungles of the Queensland coast to the servitude of the sugar plantations to the mysterious lives of the Aborigines, here is an exciting story with all the elements you would hope for in Christian fiction.

Samantha Connolly and her sisters have attempted to escape the bleak future in Ireland by emigrating to Queensland in response to an offer of indenture. Circling half the globe she discovered a world she had never anticipated or desired--yet her home was now a world away!

Their master, sugar planter Cole Sloan, is embroiled in legal tangles and economic woes, trying to keep his plantation afloat. Samantha's middle sister is fortunate to find a beau in the local preacher while Samantha is drawn to Sloan. But callousness, unethical dealings, enslavement, and eventually murder sully the man--or is he a victim of his past and present circumstances?

Tangeld paths weave together as the brief white occupancy of Australia crosses the lengthy past of the Aborigines. How will the Gospel find its way into their lives, and will morals be upheld even at the cost of sacrifice?

    Did not like it

    The book is basically about greed that fosters hate, murder, deceit and all other soe,rts of evil. It has a lot of violence and darkness in it. Not worth the read in my oppinion. The only character that I liked, is Samantha. The others were not developed enough or were too dark in my opinion. I couldnt really follow the plot. There were too many characters with their own story and agenda and just not intertwined enough to make a whole lot of sense. This was the book I read by this author and I will not read another one. There is an understanding in the book that Jesus saves but no understanding about His love and grace for us. Some if the characters get saved but still dont walk in their new life. They are still caught up in Old Testament thinking, i.e. revenge, that it veils Jesus and allows the violence and evil be on the forefront in the chracters. Even Samantha never resolves her own search for God. While the violent ending is appropriate for the book, it fails to bring the story to an end and create some type of peace. Had it not been for the character of Samantha, I would have put the book down, no later than midway through it. I should have. The sense of the spiritual darkness never left, which is sad. I questioned several times throughout the book why it is called a Christian book. A Christian book allows the characters to get to know God's love and who He is and in turn draws the reader, himself or herself, closer to God. This book did not.

    The Real Outback

    I've never been to The Land Down Under, but with the amazing detail in the writing, I sure felt lije I was there! The story line drags a bit, but being this is book 1 in a series, I suppoe that is to be expected.
    The author does a fine job of causing the reader to feel what each character feels.
    Good read.

    No one in this novel is particularly lovable, and Cole Sloan is

    No one in this novel is particularly lovable, and Cole Sloan is a big angry jerk. That took all the fun out of it for me.

    Fun to read

    This book kept my attention. I especially enjoyed the "moral of the story" ending.

    Samantha Connelly and her sisters,  Margaret aka Meg and Linnett

    Samantha Connelly and her sisters,  Margaret aka Meg and Linnett along with
    Cole Sloan and Luke Vinson are the main characters. It was hard for me to give a review
    on this book. No matter what type of book, I usually feel as if I got something from it.  Instead,
    I tried to figure out what I received from this book and came up empty. Ending kind of reminded me
    a bit of gone with the wind. Although the book ended okay. I can only say, depends on the reader. 
    For me, its an okay read.  I would try another from this author...but, if its like this one...
    then I know its not for me.  I give it 2 1/2 stars, it was okay just not good to me. *vrnb*

    I finished it but ---

    I can not really say that it was a truly great read. It lagged a lot, just sort of meandered around. Then in other places it made you sit up and take norice. Since I could not give a half star, I gave it a four star rating. Having been to Australia, I did appreciate her quite accurate descriptions of the country where the action takes place.
