I want to visit Broome

A wonderful story. A bit too many coincidences in parts but heartwarming characters.
I guess it's a bit of Mills & Boone romance, but with an historic base story.

Excellent read

Just had to take this book with me everywhere. Every time I had the chance - out would come the earphones. Impossible to put it down once you start reading it.
