I can see why Australian friends of mine have read this book several times. It is a compelling story of early convict settlers, a story of survival and love and has become one of my all time favourites. It is read brilliantly and the bars of music that separate the parts is perfect. You HAVE to listen to this book.

Wow.
The story line kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. At several points I had to turn it off because I couldn't bear the suspense. Every setback piled the pressure on.
An audible book, In my opinion, stands or falls by the narrator. He was brilliant and captured Mark's sense of humour.
I can't recommend this book highly enough.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Whilst I did not suffer the same calamities Julliete, the heroine in this story, the well meaning antics of her mother and friends and the situations she found herself in resonated with me. I walked my way back to happiness with my dogs listening to four of Lucy Dillon's books. Lucy Price-Lewis has a lovely reading voice, one which is a pleasure to listen to, and I found myself walking further and further, listening to the story unfold with great enjoyment.

What did you like best about this story?

Whilst it is a romantic story, the path was not straighforward or predictable, something I find important after reading sooo many romances. Lucy Dillon weaves several stories together in a believable and absorbing way. Lucy Price-Lewis gives subtle but differenty defined 'voices' to the characters. As a dog owner, I loved the way Dillon wove in various dogs and their foilbles in to the story.

Have you listened to any of Lucy Price-Lewis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have loved all the novels I have listened to so far and would recommend them all. However, I do have a sneaky preference for the first one I heard, the Secret of Happy Ever After, but it is really only because it was the first one I listened to.
