46 Set of Signed Copies (Aussie sagas) (set 2 of 2): Fleur McDonald

ITEM: Two signed copies of the novels Red Dust and Blue Skies, by Fleur McDonald. 

DETAILS: Red Dust… After the tragic death of her husband in a light-plane accident, Gemma Sinclair is left with the daunting task of managing the vast outback station he’s bequeathed her. But she remains haunted by Adam’s dying words, not to mention persistent whispers that Adam’s death was not an accident.

Review: “Fleur McDonald imbues Red Dust with the authentic flavour of one who knows both the soul-destroying struggles and the exquisite joys of making a living from the land… Red Dust is an inspirational story about a strong woman dealing with adversity. She is one of the most asset-rich young women in the district, but is buffeted by a myriad of dilemmas that would bring most people unstuck. The qualities that see Gemma through her annus horribilis are the best of bush life: the loyalty of friends and family, along with her innate honest and pragmatism. It’s satisfying to read a straight-talking yarn in an authentic setting that doesn’t shy away from the big issues of contemporary life on the land.” ~ RM Williams Outback Magazine, issue 66 Aug/Sept 2009

Blue Skies… The inspirational story of a young woman battling to save the family farm no matter what it takes.

“If you love Aussie-flavoured sagas, feisty heroines or a mystery at the heart of your stories, then Fleur McDonald is a perfect pick for you.” – Paula Tapiolas. ABC QLD Blog
