Read complete review

Rachael Treasure is a well known Australian author of rural fiction and Fifty Bales of Hay is an entertaining collection of 12 sexy short stories between consenting adults on the land.

'Lust in the dust' says the blurb, and in Droving Done and Milking Time the dust is certainly stirred. In The Crutching and Cattle Crush familiar farming equipment is re purposed in inventive ways.

What I particularly loved about this collection is that the women and men featured range widely in age from new adult through to couples in mid life and beyond. I also really appreciated that generally the women take charge of their sexuality and their pleasure, from cougar Krissy in Branded to lonely long haul driver, Celia, in Truck Wash.

There is plenty of Sex in Fifty Bales of Hay – I don't think it's quite explicit enough to be termed erotica but for most readers I think the difference would be immaterial.
The references to EL James Fifty Shades of Grey are slyly amusing and I was glad to find there is no attempt to imitate the novel's story or characters.

Fifty Bales of Hay is an entertaining read, provocative, amusing and even tender. My husband has been trying to convince me to let him buy a ride on mower, I might just let him now

Fifty Bales of Hay

I think the author tells a reasonable story but it just wasn't my choice of good reading.

                      With the variety of short stories, there's ample to keep the reader interested.
                      Not all sex and lust and has some twists to some of the stories.
                      A great fun book brilliantly written.

                      Praise for Rachael treasure:

                      'Down-to-earth, bawdy, satirical, and entertaining' - BOOKSELLER + PUBLISHER

                      Rachael Treasure

                      Tasmanian born Rachael Treasure gets as excited about dung beetle activity in the soil as she does by beautiful writing. By combining her love for the land and the written word, Rachael sparked a publishing boom in 2002 when her first novel Jillaroo woke the world up to contemporary women's stories beyond the city lights. 

                      Rachael lives in Southern rural Tasmania and is a full time mother to two young humans and many eccentric animals including a budgie called Putty Plonkit. She has been dubbed an agricultural activist, farm feminist and literary pioneer and has worked as a rural journalist, radio broadcaster, truffle sniffer dog handler, professional wool classer, stock camp cook, drover, farm manager and working dog trainer.

                      Her novels following Jillaroo include The StockmanThe RouseaboutThe Cattleman's Daughter,The Farmer's WifeCleanskin Cowgirls and short story collections, The Girl and the Ghost-Grey Mare and Fifty Bales of Hay. Non fiction works are Don't Fence Me In – Grassroots Wisdom from a Country Gal and working dog training book, Dog Speak. Her screenplay Albert's Chook Tractorwas filmed for SBS Independent TV.
