  1. would love the chance to win one of these great books to add to my ever growing collection, and what girl doesn’t love an early Christmas Present. 🙂

  2. Like any migrant to Australia, I have been keen to understand this country and its past and present and to imagine its future. Reading Australian rural romance novels at our local library has opened a door to me in this regard. Men and women in regions across Australia – their dreams, desires, strengths and weaknesses, everlasting hopes and sorrowful losses – these are all depicted in these novels. How far these are from reality is not important. What is crucial is that the imagination and creativity – the originality – of Australia’s rural romance novelists have made this land and its people absolutely colourful, fascinating and enjoyable. Thanks to all. Cheers, Christine Sun.

  15. I have had the pleasure over the last three years of discovering wonderful Australian authors. They write the most beautiful books, with stories which quickly pull you in. By the end of the books I feel like I am loosing friends. Love Mandy Magro, Fiona Palmer, Barbara Hannay, Vuctoria Purman, to mention a few. Looking forward to reading many more wonderful books

  16. So many intriguing books to explore here! My first choice is Pam’s new book The Crossroads but I could have picked any of them. I have been so caught up in writing my own first novel (which has elements of the rural romance about it) that I have barely had a chance to read for relaxation. But I will make my deadline of the finishing my first draft by Christmas. Then I will reward myself with the indulgence of reading some of these wonderful novels.
