    Love, Tears and Fears!

    Years ago, I read a book about the First Fleet to Australia called THE EXILES. I finished it, but only because I was so interested in early Australian history. Basically, it was boring. This one is a lot different. The action starts on the first page, there are few 'explanatory conversations' between the characters - yet the history is very much present throughout the book, due to some clever crafting on the part of the author. The heroine, Devon Wakefield, is a plucky little girl who shouldn't have even been on the First Fleet; the hero, a confirmed Londoner named Jonathan Lake, undergoes a profound inner transformation because of Australia and because of his love for Devon. The action never ceases, and the characters are well-drawn. Among the most interesting is an aborigine shamaness named Manjiree. Whether or not you're interested in early Australian history, if you like historical romances you'll love DEVON WAKEFIELD. And if you don't particularly like historical romances, you'll still like it. In my humble opinion, it's better literature than most of the historical romances on the market. Enjoy!
