Aussie/American relations continue to improve
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this one even more than book one. This is another six months down the line and Charlie has admitted to himself, and more importantly to Travis, that he loves him and doesn’t want him to leave.
But life’s never a smooth ride, so Charlie still has obstacles in his own head, and his father’s voice ringing in his ears, to fight against and for a long time, it looks like it might be too much. Then a letter arrives which lets Charlie know without any doubt that he wants a future with Travis, one he’s willing to fight, and fight hard, for.
I loved the additional exploration we got from NR in this book about the Aussie Outback way of life, the hard work and dedication which keeps these country sized cattle stations working. But even more than that, I loved how Charlie discovered his own internal strength and the courage to declare to the world that a gay farmer could be just as good, if not better, than all those macho contemporaries of his father.
