One man lost her. One man died for her. And one would kill for her ... Nicole Alexander's new bestseller is a sweeping rural saga spanning two generations.

In 1923 nineteen-year-old Jack Manning watches the construction of the mighty Harbour Bridge and dreams of being more than just a grocer's son. So when he's offered the chance to manage Absolution Creek, a sheep property 800 miles from Sydney, he seizes the opportunity.

But outback life is tough, particularly if you're young, inexperienced and have only a few textbooks to guide you. Then a thirteen-year-old girl, Squib Hamilton, quite literally washes up on his doorstep - setting in motion a devastating chain of events...

Forty years later and Cora Hamilton is waging a constant battle to keep Absolution Creek in business. She's ostracized by the local community and hindered by her inability to move on from the terrible events of her past, which haunt her both physically and emotionally.

Only one man knows what really happened in 1923. A dying man who is riding towards Absolution Creek, seeking his own salvation...

From the gleaming foreshores of Sydney Harbour to the vast Australian outback, this is a story of betrayal and redemption and of an enduring love which defies even death.

Disappointing. Hard to engage with poorly developed characters. Story line doesn't really go anywhere.

Was slow and a little hard to follow to start but once you were in, it was a great read.

Sweeping rural saga

4

As a fourth generation grazier, Nicole Alexander writes what she knows, sweeping sagas set in Australia's rural farming land. Absolution Creek is her third novel, with dual narratives set in 1923 and 1965. Absolution Creek is a complex tale of love, betrayal, jealousy, murder and revenge. I found it to be an absorbing read and I'd recommend Absolution Creek to fans of both historical fiction and the rural lit/romance genres. I am only sorry it took it's time making it's way to the top of my reading list.
