I am so excited to share this bookblast from Historical Fiction Book Tours with you all! This story reminds me of Isabella Lucy Bird, read below and you will see what i mean:
Can she hold on to her dreams…?
It’s 1850 and the Noble family have travelled to the other side of the world to start a new life after scandal drove them from their native England.
Pippa Noble is determined to reclaim their honour by making her father’s plan for an outback farm reality, although her ambition is frowned upon by a society that has very set ideas about a woman’s place…
Pippa learns the hard way about the unforgiving nature of the bush, sometimes with devastating consequences. And when unfortunate circumstance leads to Pippa tending the farm alone, it is the friendship of neighbouring estate owner Gil Ashford-Smith that helps her through.
Then an unexpected visitor from England arrives, putting Pippa’s dreams in jeopardy. But she refuses to let go. She will hold onto her family’s land, even if it means losing everything else…
“A compelling story of a headstrong woman who defies the traditional female role and forages a successful life through hard work and a strong vision. Excellent descriptions of the outback and the hardships of life in Australia in the 1850’s.” – Amazon Review
I don’t know about you, but I now have a strong desire to get swept away by this summer read.
