already listened twice

This narrator has the tone of voice that absolutely suits the story. It's a storyline that some will find unbearable if not unbelievable but the whole book relies on people understanding stories. I think it is lovely. I bought it on a whim and although I have already listened to it twice, it is a book I will come back to because it evokes a view of Australia that we would like to be part of or like to be true.

Magnificent, Thought-provoking story

Any additional comments?

This is not only a story about being kidnapped. It's really a story of what’s right and what’s wrong. I truly cared for Gemma, Ty, I even felt for the poor chickens and the camel tied up outside. I am so emotionally drained after reading this as it's the kind of story that really messes with your mind! I loved every minute of it. I do caution you, this is not the happily ever after type of story. The narrator did an outstanding job!
