(I received a free copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.)

Australian historical romance/sagas have been quite popular over the last few years and this novella by Téa Cooper proves why.

After losing her husband and mother to a horrific accident, Lilibeth finds herself back living at home with her father, needing to look after the family property as her father has turned to the bottle for solace.

When she and friends are taking some horses to Sydney for shipping to India as a way to raise money to get the family out of debt, she is kidnapped and ransomed by bush-rangers. Would she get the horses to where they needed to go or would she find that dealing with the bushrangers far harder than she could imagine?


Tea Cooper is not yet a household name but with more solid work like this, she is certain to be in time. A great read and recommended to anyone who loves Australian historicals.
