Overview

Inheritance, betrayal, love, sex, aboriginal magic and a sleazy lawyer. What more could you want?

1987. The morning after the Great Storm. A letter drops through the door of Jess Whitelaw's London flat and sets her on a journey through the Australian Outback and her own damaged psyche.

In the heat and dust of the Northern Territory, Jess’s protective armour is chipped away as painful truths are revealed. Tension builds like thunderheads heralding the start of the Wet.

Will Jess be able to come to terms with the guilt she feels?

Will she ever learn that the past is not so terrifying when looked at the right way?

This book is not what it seems. I expected it to be a romance, spiced up with some vivid dialogue and great descriptions, but then it takes a more unpleasant turn, when some characters begin to show their true nature, and there are revelations about Jessica’s past and Darcy’s ending. Around a third of the way through, however, there is a quite unexpected spiritual turn. There is some very powerful writing in these parts. I was disappointed that Rossi didn’t come to a particularly nasty ending, but it would not have fitted the way the book turned out. Especially recommended for those people who like to consider themselves as more spiritually aware than the average person.

Very interesting. Had a little trouble with the australian dialect at first but, in all, the story was well written with great characters.

This is my book so I'm not actually reviewing it here. If you've read it please leave a review - I'd love some feedback. I've ticked 4* because that's the rating it has on Amazon - but don't take my word for it - download a sample! This novel is set in Australia and is aimed mainly, but not exclusively, at women. It may work well for book club discussions as certain ethical questions are raised.
