An epic family saga set in the wilds of Australia from early 1900s to the late 1960s.

My mom tried to get me to read this book for many years. I remember when the TV miniseries came out and it was all the rage with her friends and coworkers. I finally sat down and read this book at a slower pace than I normally read a book. I wanted to drink it all in and let myself process the beauty of the landscape and the depth of family and forbidden love.

I would definitely say this is a book for the adult reader due to language and sexual content.

A worth while read.

Triggers: Sexual scenes, language, death of a parent, death of a sibling, death of a child
