Publisher's Summary

He thought he had everything until tragedy struck... Adam Ross, orphaned at nine, cherished a dream - that one day he would have land of his own. The opal fields of Coober Pedy offered his first glimpse of riches - and Nellie, a dusky beauty, provided his first taste of love...
From the western plains of New South Wales to the balmy waters of Sydney Harbour, from the grinding heat of a West Australian cattle station to the eerie desert shores of Lake Eyre, Adam was driven by his ambition. At his side stood Heather, a woman whose blonde beauty masked a calculating heart of ice. And when tragedy struck, it seemed that Adam would never realise his dream...

A little too long winded

Unfortunately for me the book was about 30% too long. I found a lot of the scenes went on for too long. I am a fan of detail but found it quite tedious in this book. I also found some of the plot and characters a little hard to believe. Spoiler alert, you never do find out about Adam's empire, it's more like Adam's Saga. Sadly it didn't quite work for me.

Great listen!

I loved this book! In fact I hated to have it end! The book is so well written, and the narrator is so good that I felt like I slipped into that world! I strongly recommend this book and narrator!

Engrossing Story

Gripping story, excellent narration. Incredible detail, even excruciating at times. But hard to stop listening

Good but long winded

Very good storyline with great performances but very longwinded. Had me at the edge of my seat many times.
