In her twelfth novel, popular Australian author Di Morrissey creates a sprawling family saga. Sally, the spunky heroine, leaves her life of privilege in New Zealand for a job as governess on a remote cattle station in Barra Creek. There she experiences the dangers inherent in her new life--from racism to crocodile-infested river, from fierce desert to unforgiving jungle. Kate Hood's delivery is energetic and fast paced. Her characterizations bring an edgy realism to Morrissey's rugged cast. When Sally finds her perfect man, Hood is all fuzzy coquettishness, and when he turns out to be not so perfect, her voice drips with disillusionment. Hood's expressive interpretation adds substance to Morrissey's romantic adventure. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
