Tea Cooper continues to create amazing historical fiction stories that are impossible to put down! This one is told through a dual timeline, providing a view of the 1860s as well as the early 1900s.
Strong female characters always make it easy for me to connect with a book, and these characters were definitely that! They are smart and headstrong. They are confident, and are impossible not to love!
I really love that this book is centered around Australia! It’s a lovely journey through so many different parts of the country. Cooper’s writing creates a real world that you can step into through the pages. You can see the goldfields, feel the sunshine, and smell the air. It’s an amazing journey!
The mystery in this story was very intriguing. I loved the different POVs and timelines that twist and weave their way together to finally give the reader the full picture of what happened. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, and I highly recommend it!
