    PDF To Love a Sunburnt Country ePUB ↠ To Love eBook ß babyandbeyondshow.co.uk love book, sunburnt free, country book, To Love mobile, a Sunburnt ebok, Love a Sunburnt mobile, To Love a Sunburnt Country eBookI have mixed feelings about this book It is a cracking war story with all the twists and turns and tragedies and heartbreak you would expect However it is like a story sold in a souvenir shop to tourists the Australiana is extreme Slang and turn of phrase makes sense But every simile is “as surely as she knew the colour of the paddocks after rain” or “still as a lizard on a rock” or “just like a rider went ahead when you were droving” I felt saturated in it Once the story got going and the main characters stopped focussing on how Aussie they were the story was easier to tolerate I will just put to one side the fact that some characters seem to have famous bush ballads written about them I don’t know what to do with that On the recommendation of one of our book group members I read this without reading the earlier books The story is standalone but they do spend a fa

    PDF To Love a Sunburnt Country ePUB ↠ To Love eBook ß babyandbeyondshow.co.uk love book, sunburnt free, country book, To Love mobile, a Sunburnt ebok, Love a Sunburnt mobile, To Love a Sunburnt Country eBookA compelling and well written story I feel enriched to have read it the way Jackie French weaves historical events and details into the lives of fictional characters is masterful This is the first book I have read in this series following the lives of fictional iconic Australians Matilda from 'Walzing Matilda'and 'The Man From Snowy River' legend and I did find it hard to follow the complex inter relationship of the characters but I'm sure that was because I had not read their history in the prior books I must admit that I found the use of the folk tale linked characters added a layer of sentimentality to the story that I found distractingThis book follows the characters through the trials of WW2 focusing on the Australian home front and the Pacific most closely the women Japanese prisoners of war I didn't fall in love with the characters but I
