Calla Maloney’s sole purpose for visiting Kangaroo Island was to use the four days to find her brother Jem. Not since he’d stormed away from her and sister Rose two years before had they seen him – or even heard from him. It was the police who’d advised Calla that he was on Kangaroo Island. She was nervous, scared – and frustrated at the seasickness that was making her feel miserable.

Sam Hunter was a firefighter in Adelaide and loved his job, heartbreaking though it was at times. His father, Charlie, lived on Kangaroo Island at the family property, Roo’s Rest. But he was alone now and with Sam not often there, the island doctor was concerned that Charlie needed to move into care. But the stubborn old coot wouldn’t budge! Sam needed to change his mind, though he wasn’t sure how to do it.

When Calla and Sam bumped into one another – literally – there was an immediate connection between the two. But Calla had to focus on finding Jem; until she found him – if she found him – she couldn’t put her guilt aside. While Sam was dreading the usual argument he knew was coming with his father…

Only We Know by Aussie author Victoria Purman is a story of heartbreak and loss, of family secrets, broken hearts and guilt. Set mainly on Kangaroo Island, just across from the beautiful coastline of South Australia and Adelaide, I enjoyed the rugged setting, the strong characters and the intriguing storyline. I particularly liked Charlie and really wanted to give him a hug 😊 Highly recommended.

Dale Harcombe Great review, Brenda. Having been to and loved Kangaroo Island I am now keen to read this book.


Brenda Thanks Dale :) It's a great story - some language, but it seems to fit...
