Overview

With winter drawing near, her savings exhausted and her lover lost, Lea Mere leaves home to seek her fortune. She chooses to return to a country she left five years before, hoping to find some summer sun and perhaps to rekindle an old romance. Lea takes a job managing the remnants of a small company that has just been taken over by a large and corrupt corporation. By day she wrestles with the dark side of corporate politics, sometimes successfully, sometimes not. And by night she experiences the pleasures of Australia’s glorious Gold Coast, in the company of a man she might come to love. Lea is both clever and bold. But will she fail like her predecessor?
~
The underlying theme of ‘The Song of Leanne’ is based on the great French epic ‘La Chanson de Roland’. Chapter headings are taken from Robert Browning’s poem ‘Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came’.
~
This story is guaranteed to be free of serial killers and pedophiles, but may contain the odd corporate sociopath.

    Good story, intelligent and great picture of life in Queensland Australia

    The heroine is half American half Asian and this is her story of six months spent in Australia. The story covers both her working life in Brisbane and her romantic escapades in Surfers Paradise. I found the descrption of her life fascinating and believable. Some of the work stuff was a bit heavy but it rang true, and you can skim through it if you want. The romance between Lea and Ben worked well. She is a professional and he is not quite a beach bum, but he doesn't earn much, though he seems to have a pretty good life. There were shades of Crocodile Dundee but Ben is a muscian and crafstman. There is a mystery surrounding Lea's predecessor in her job, Winona, and hints all the way through about what happened to her, but it's not until the end that you find out the truth. All the ends were neatly tied up and yet there are obviously several sequels. I like that the following books will be set in other countries. I can be an armchair traveller!
