    This book is the continuation story of the first book in this trilogy which is a little confusing because the second book doesn't seem to have anything to do with these two and is written about a completely different family. I was waiting for the stories to merge throughout the book - I'm still not sure if I missed it. Apart from that mystery the story is written really well and is a hard look at how isolated families can be in outback towns. There's lots of tragedy and trauma all wrapped up in t This book is the continuation story of the first book in this trilogy which is a little confusing because the second book doesn't seem to have anything to do with these two and is written about a completely different family. I was waiting for the stories to merge throughout the book - I'm still not sure if I missed it. Apart from that mystery the story is written really well and is a hard look at how isolated families can be in outback towns. There's lots of tragedy and trauma all wrapped up in the story line - some of which should require a bit of a warning as it really could trigger some readers. The main premise of the two books about the Burton family is a little far fetched - I don't want to give anything away though. The characters felt like real people in these books which is great. I'm hoping there's another edition to come next. Definitely need another book for the 2nd tale of this trilogy!

    The sequel to Mallawindy, it is good though I thought the first book was better, this one dragged in some places I felt, still would recommend it especially if you like Joy's other books but read Mallawindy first The sequel to Mallawindy, it is good though I thought the first book was better, this one dragged in some places I felt, still would recommend it especially if you like Joy's other books but read Mallawindy first

    A good sequel to Mallawindy. Not quite as good, it took a bit to get going.It tied up a lot of the loose ends. A worthwhile read.

    Tedious re-hash of the first book, with little added in the way of plot or character development.
