The Land of Golden Wattle by J.H Fletcher is an epic read over the generations that I enjoyed with the setting and characters mainly in Tasmania Australia I usually like books that change the time setting chapter by chapter, but this one had three time periods going at once so did get a little mind boggling at times for me Luckily I read it in a few days school holidays at the moment in Aust if I had been reading it at a busy time in my life, I think I would have found it hard to keep up I enjoyed each of the characters, but you don t become overly attached because of this.in saying all that, the storyline is fabulous in how the station Derwent came about and how over the years the generations farmed it and kept it going, nearly losing it at times etc The writing is lovely and descriptive and effortlessly takes the reader to another time and place Set in the Australian gold rush days this is another great read from one of my favourite authors I did however find the constant changing from one generation to another quite tiresome It works with two generations but with such a number of different characters from different periods I found it confusing and, at times, hard to follow Otherwise well worth reading. What a book What a book Read this it s a brilliant read I listened to it as an audio book and the narrator was amazing The chapters do switch around between eras centuries so you have to keep a handle on the characters and which years you are in so as to not get confused but it flows incredibly well So beautifully written and touches on historic events such as the Eureka stockade Highly recommended Loved it While there were some beautiful bits in the book, I couldn t help but feel rushed as the author raced the finish each couples story, especially Emma and Ephraim s Though the descriptions of the land, and some of the characters were phenomenal, I felt this book would have read better as a trilogy instead of crammed into one book. What a story loved it Really got into this family s history wonderful read. Not really a fan of this type of novel But it was an easy read. .Download Pdf ⚔ Land of Golden Wattle ⚉ , Van Diemen S LandWhen Her Father Dies In A Duel, Year Old Emma Tregellas Is Left With Limited Funds And At The Mercy Of Her Odious Guardian Faced With The Prospect Of Being Forced Into Marriage With A Man She Detests, She Enlists The Help Of Her True Love, Ephraim Dark,who Assists Her To Escape To Faraway Van Diemen S Land Here She Seeks Sanctuary With Her Wealthy Uncle Barnsley Tregellas, TasmaniaThe Union Of Bec Hampton And Jonathan, Heir To The Fabulously Wealthy Penrose Estate, Brought Promise Of Reconciliation To Two Warring Sides Of The Same Family A Dynasty That Had Its Foundations Laid By Emma Tregellas And Ephraim Dark Nearly A Hundred Years Earlier Defying Opposition From Jonathan S Formidable Grandmother, Bec Had Gained Control Of Derwent, The Agricultural Empire That The Family Had Built From The Early Days Of White Settlement Now , Bec S Dearest Wish Is That Her Granddaughter Tamara Should Inherit The Property But Giles, Her Dissolute Son, Has Other Ideas Will Bec And Tamara Succeed In Defeating Giles S Plans Or Will Control Of Derwent Pass Irrevocably Out Of The Family This Majestic Historical Drama Spans Seven Generations Of An Often Divided Australian Family With Them We Experience Many Of The Traumatic Events Of Australia S History The Early Days Of White Settlement, The Gold Rush, The Cataclysm Of Two World Wars And The Great Depression Enjoyable story with good characters but I sometimes felt that the story was being raced through almost summarised. This was interesting but a bit ambitious covering 7 generations and skipping between time periods. Historically sound with drama of the gold rush saga.
