The story is a touching memoir of a nurse who becomes a cattle rancher's wife living in the most desolate part of Australia. Her accent and vocabulary add charm to a tale of love, devotion, sorrow, and achievement. The tearful emotion of her voice cannot conceal the sadness still felt as she relates the death of her first-born infant son. The words are clear, brisk, and catching as she brings us into a world of endless work motivated by a pioneer spirit. The same book read by another narrator would never have the impact it does from the mouth of a mother living in the middle of nowhere. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 01]
