Book Review-Reach-For-the-Dream

 

Reach For the Dream

by

Anne McCullagh Rennie

Reach For The Dream by Sydney author, Anne McCullagh Rennie, was my second novel by this author.  Rennie is fast becoming one of my favourite authors.

Shortly after the death of their mother, eight year old, Alice and younger brother, Ben and also lose their family home and any connection they had to their mother when their house burns to the ground.

Their shearer father palms of his children to live with his sister and her family, where both settle in fairly well with the exception of an obnoxious female cousin.

Alice loves the outback and soon she and Ben have plans to start a sheep stud from which they will breed the best wool in the country.  However, the best laid plans are often thwarted by fate and jealous cousins.

Alice moves to London where she works successfully as part of a research team, for half a decade or more.

Upon her return to Australia she purchases land near Bilabrinn where her aunt lives, and commences to pursue her dream of breeding the best wool Australia has ever seen.   Although many of the locals just want her to breed…a woman’s place is in the home… and all that.

If you like good clean storylines and Outback Australia I feel certain that you will love Reach for the Dream.

Sunday was cherry harvest day/hour  🙂.

 

In 2019 the birds found their way through

our net and beat us to most of the crop. 

2020 came around we were prepared. 

No bird was going to find its way

into our mini cherry tree this year. 

And we give thanks for that.

Although I must confess giving thanks

for managing to starve birds of their

cherry fix does seem odd.
