This is the first book I have read by this great Australian author and I must say I was totally enthralled to the very end. It was a story about healing the heart, body and soul in a very relatable and I am sure most readers would find these characters to be enjoyable. I loved both the main characters and loved how Zara would call Ward by his Christian name of Brendan as he always thought he was in trouble. I love to read a book that is set in Australia with Aussie mannerisms used add a great chance to what I have been reading of late. I received an ARC copy of this book to which I am writing my honest and voluntary review. If you have not read anything by Mel A Rowe I would suggest you give this book a try.
