Tral motif of Daughter of the Murray South Australian author Darry Fraser gives us a tale that flows effortlessly for the reader but it s not without its snags and hidden obstacles for its hero and heroine Fraser does an excellent job of bringing the landscape vividly to life and touching on some of the late 19th century social issues in a way which is not heavy handed or reachy Another thing I appreciated was the way she eschewed a cliched villain and gave Conor Foley strong motivation so it was easy to sympathise with some of his decisionsThis is a very easy read and a great way to wile away an afternoon Daughter of the Murray reminds me of Nancy Cato s Australian classic All The Rivers Run and it sets itself up effortlessly for a seuel In terms of writing style it is five stars Darry Fraser can certainly string words togetherFor me though I really disliked Georgina She was that combination of ignorance and ride that I really hate Always fighting the world like she knows what s going on while being completely ignorant And in her ignorance she made some really stupid decisionsAnd the whole romance between Georgie and Dane just didn t work Romance books often have Dusk (Rosales Saga, people dislike each other at first while their bodies are saying yes heshe s the one but usually the head starts catching up with the body This didn t seem to happen They didn t really have any good moments together where they see each other s good sides They just fought Georgie never trusted Dane completely disliked him and fought him at every opportunityThey slept together and Georgie was certain it was just because he wanted the business and Jacaranda so she ran away He came after her and they slept together again and then she was once again certain he had bad intentions and went back to Melbourne It was only when she discovered she wasregnant that she went after him and they got married It didn t exactly make me excited that they were tying the knotThen we had the whole real dad turning up and by then I just wanted the book overI felt Fraser s intention was to support feminism but Georgie needed to be a better character for that to happen In this she comes across as a bratty teenager who really needs to grow up before being given any responsibility I m glad she didn t end up running the business because she really would have destroyed it It wasn t right for her but she stubbornly dug her heels in because she didn t like being told she couldn t do something I enjoyed this historical read set on the mighty Murray River a George Washingtons Secret Six place I really want to visit Loved the setting and the characters Only one small veryicky observation is that I found the cover did not match the book at all I was expecting a nice descriptive captivating historical read but found instead of one of those romances that at first drive you crazy because Georgina from the very beginning was so immature and spoiled and I just wanted to strangle her but as the book rogresses by the end I could see the character she would become As I said very icky but I m not sure the illustrator read the book first All in all a really good read that I did enjoy. Secret Conor Foley who offers Georgina apparent security a marriage with status in the emerging nouveau riche echelons of Melbourne But none of them could imagine the toll the changing The Caretaker political and social landscape would have on homes hearts and families Will Georgina’sath lead her into grave danger and unhappiness or will she survive and fulfil her destiny.
