I love any book with a strong, independent, hard working woman as the lead character! Beattie proves to be all that and more after overcoming hardships in the early 30's in England. After she becomes pregnant by an older married man, she is kicked out of her house and sent to a home for young, unmarried pregnant girls until the father of the child comes to take her to Australia. The relationship is toxic, and eventually Beattie flees her home with her young daughter Lucy. This story line intertwines with Beattie's granddaughter Emma's own narrative which is told nearly 70 years later. Emma inherits an old sheep farm from her rich deceased grandmother and slowly finds out more information about her grandma's past. It feels like a mystery because Emma is trying to find out more about her grandmother's past before the reader knows some of the details. I also love it because it has a little bit of romance in it too! Overall, a really good read!
