Publisher's Summary

Caine Neiheisel is stuck in a dead-end job at the end of a dead-end relationship when the chance of a lifetime falls in his lap. His mother inherits her uncle’s sheep station in New South Wales, Australia, and Caine sees it as the opportunity to start over, out on the range where his stutter won’t hold him back and his willingness to work will surely make up for his lack of knowledge.
Unfortunately, Macklin Armstrong, the foreman of Lang Downs who should be Caine’s biggest ally, alternates between being cool and downright dismissive, and the other hands are more amused by Caine’s American accent than they are moved by his plight…until they find out he’s gay and their amusement turns to scorn. It will take all of Caine’s determination - and an act of cruel sabotage by a hostile neighbor - to bring the men of Lang Downs together and give Caine and Macklin a chance at love.

Struth, cobber!

What did you like best about Inherit the Sky? What did you like least?

Bonzer story, but hearing an American try to narrate Aussie dialogue is both painful and hilarious. I was puzzled for ages over what a gulla might be. Galah, a very stupid bird even by bird standards, is pronounced galaaaaah. And it's DRYzabone as in dry as a bone, not drizzabone. And way too many other jarring mispronunciations.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Couldn't they at least have hired someone who's spoken to an Aussie once or twice....


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I'd consider it.

Love in the Outback

I really enjoyed this book. I think the narrator does a great job and the story is engaging. A transplanted American finds love with a seasoned foreman of a sheep station in the Australian outback. What's not to love? I listened to this in 48 hours, it was that engaging. Definitely worth a credit. On to Book 2.
