This book was well written. McCullough is a talented storyteller. However, I felt that the book was too long and dragged, due to superfluous information. Overall an interesting, colorful story and vivid portrait of early Australia.

Can I have a review please?


Jennifer Lafferty I have noticed that there are many freelance writers on Goodreads and I wanted to share a writing opportunity with you. I have been writing a column for Examiner for over two years and have found it to be a rewarding way to earn some extra money and add to my resume. You can choose the topics you want to write about, news, entertainment, fashion, culinary, etc.

If you decide to apply please use this link http://exm.nr/LAoKtN

Jennifer Lafferty Please check out my new children's book Dorothea Duck and Her Little Companion it is available in kindle format and paperback and free if you are a prime member.

Mama Duck Dorothea and her duckling Jenny have a special bond. They are as close as a mother and child can be. But Jenny is growing up and it's time she learned to be more independent. As Jenny explores the duck pond on her own and learns to make new friends, things don't always go smoothly but her efforts are ultimately rewarded.
