I fell in love with the characters. They had faults and strengths. They did wonderful things. They did stupid things.

So many times I wanted to shout, 'No, that's not right.' I knew they wouldn't listen.

I cried. This book is tragic. It's magnificient and sweeping. It's so vivid I felt I was there in that dilapated house on Eumeralla. I was at Kingower, the much more affluent property a thousand miles away. I was in Sydney. I was in Melbourne.

This was a good read, though I found it difficult to get my head around so many characters and which families they were part of. The relationships between the various characters were sometimes confusing and not always believable and the flashbacks not smoothly rendered - but the writing, especially in the descriptive passages, was excellent.

I think I should have had a pen & paper with me when I read this to keep track of who was who, who was related to who & what the relationships were. Kept me on edge right to the end - which I hadn't predicted at all

I enjoyed this book very much. I could envision the twins and how they must have felt to be separated. Life doesn't always have a happy ending and this story shows that. This story reminded me of Cinderella and the ugly stepsisters. Look forward to reading more by this author.
