Book Description

Red Dust opens with Gemma Sinclair grieving the death of her husband, Adam, in a horrific plane crash and learning she's inherited the 10,000 hectare station his family has worked for generations.

Despite huge scepticism from surrounding landowners, Gemma decides not to sell Billbinya, disregarding Adam's dying words that he's in trouble and she must sell the station.

As if the job of keeping the station going isn't enough, a wave of innuendo sweeps through the local community about Adam's involvement in cattle and sheep duffing. There are even whispers the plane crash was no accident. A visit from the police confirms the rumours, with Gemma discovering that not only was Adam involved, but has indirectly implicated her by using Billbinya as a holding station for the stolen stock.

Intent on clearing her name, Gemma determines to get to the bottom of what was going on. In the process, she's shocked to discover the masterminds behind the duffing are two former school friends, and that a trusted stock agent and good friend are somehow involved.

When Gemma is finally cleared of any wrongdoing, she decides to put the past behind her and return to the family farm - a new love by her side.

5.0 out of 5 stars Biased opinion 22 Feb. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I chose this rating because I am an Australian residing overseas and can't get enough of the Australian female authors bringing to light the intertwining of the Australian life in the outback and romance thrown in to add to the mix.
I'm not sure non Australians would appreciate these sagas, however, if you want to get the feel for what it is like living in the outback and how they manage to deal with everything that gets thrown at them, without all the luxuries of city living, then this is the book to pick up and read. Fleur has written several other novels of which I have read all, and I find her an excellent author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 2 April 2011

Anyone who like Rachael Treasure will love this. As a city chick you don't understand the daily fight of keeping an agriculture busuness so it definately gives you respect.

I didn't put it down from start to finish and am going to read blue skies now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Read 10 April 2012

I absolutely loved it. Could not wait to download the sequel (Blue skys). The story covers different generations and is very well told. It is an epic tale of life on the land, love, loss, struggles and adventure. Thoroughly enjoyable if you like Australian outback tales. The characters have depth. They are inspiring. Do yourself a favour and read this one.
