4.5***** This was something different for Jennifer Scoullar while still having the environment as a big part of the story. I'm a big fan of historical fiction and this was a great read, set in Tasmania in the late 1800's. I found it sad that even back then so many people wanted to wipe out the flora and fauna for money. Folling the lives of Luke and Belle, the hardships they go through, the secrets and lies that are told it was an engaging read that I highly recommend.
