Format:PaperbackAustralia's frontier land in the late 1800's is not the ideal place to begin a new life or relationship, but when you have lost everything else, two more mouths to feed, then...why not?
Thomasina Lindsey and her two brothers, Daniel and Jaime venture to the vast ranch lands of Australia to claim their inheritance-a small, unprofitable ranch in the middle of a larger ranch owned by someone who wishes they would just go sell out to him and go away. Adam Munro is the stereotypical rancher: strong bodied, strong minded, hard working and just plain difficult to get along with everyone. Munro needs this small parcel of land because of it water source and it just happens to sit dead center of his forty thousand acre ranch.
The Lindsey's are not giving up without a fight, but when they experience all the difficulties that come with living on a ranch, marriage to Mr. Munro is the only solution for Thomasina. Is it out of desperation or because she grows to truly love him? And of course, he being the man that he is, he cannot acknowledge his true feelings for her until it is almost too late.
Adam Munro is the tall, dark, handsome man that you want to run and cling to for his strength, support and stability. He brings life to this awesome novel about love, compromise, death and reality.
The best novel you can read will bring you smack into the middle of the setting, as if you were standing there with the characters themselves. That is what you get in this story. The descriptions and dialogue are wonderful, colorful and exact. Sometimes the fewer words the better and that is demonstrated several times throughout the story.
If you want to get lost in the past and visit another country, this book will let you experience the life of an English belle, who gives all she has to gain the love of a man who is all she has ever hoped for and becomes a reluctant frontier wife. A very good read!

Thomasina Lindsey, affectionately known as Tommy, is traveling to the Australian Outback with her brothers Jamie and David, to claim the land that was left to them by their Uncle Henry.
Adam Munro is a wealthy landowner with eyes on the property. He wants the land and will do anything to get it.
When Tommy and Adam meet, the fight for the land becomes more of a test of wills as they begin to fall for each other.
When I first started reading this, I immediately thought of Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman of the movie Australia. I kept those two in mind as I read this wonderful novel.
How can anyone not love a well-written story featuring the beauty of one of the world's most exotic countries?
I have never been to Australia but I do have it on my "Top Ten Places To Go".
Margaret Tanner has crafted a very lovely story, filled with vivid depictions of the Australian Outback, the teasing conflict between the main characters and just enough sizzle to make you blush.
