This was utterly heartbreaking in parts, and admittedly had me tearing up occasionally. I felt so angry on behalf of both men, but even more so for young Colin, as he had virtually never been outside of his privileged home in his 19 years, never lead any kind of life yet and had even been home-schooled. To say he was traumatised being carted off in chains as a criminal and dumped onto a ship bound for the other side of the world alongside ACTUAL criminals, without as much as a goodbye from his own parents, would be a massive understatement. But what I so loved about Colin was his amazing inner strength to survive, that he himself wasn’t even aware he possessed. And as much as I understood Patrick’s hesitancy to befriend Colin at first, as he had been burned by a previous lover and was wary to trust again, I was also so mad at him for ignoring such a lost and innocent young lad like Colin. But he more than redeemed himself in my eyes, when he showed his deep affection for Colin by saving him from a gang of fellow prisoners on board the ship.
And as much as this was an entirely believable and real slow build of not only a beautiful romance but solid friendship also between these gorgeous men, I have to say the world-building stole the show for me in this one. Such wonderfully descriptive writing of both the horrors on board the ship and the undeniably beautiful but equally deadly and almost uninhabitable Australian outback, and not forgetting the seemingly never-ending epic journey to The Station itself of course. It gave the reader a glimpse of how dismal and bleak these times could be coupled with a strong sense of new beginnings and hope at the same time. This was an utterly captivating story, with main characters you just champion one hundred percent from beginning to end, and some equally intriguing secondary characters who you come to really care for also. A harsh read at times, but it’s ultimately an uplifting tale of love and happiness against the odds. This one's a real keeper.
about this re-release - thankfully, I really enjoyed it.
Colin leads a very privileged life, he comes from money, lives in a large home, has horses at his disposal, has a place to study at Cambridge and wants for nothing. Even as a very young boy, he knew he was different but it wasn't until he discovered the stable master, Patrick, taking his pleasure in another man that things started to click into place and Colin realised that not only did he have an attraction to the same sex as himself but that he was also attracted to Patrick who was twelve years older than himself.
When Partick is caught with another man, Colin knows that this crime may very well mean a death sentence and his way of helping is to declare his own proclivities in the hopes that his parents will ensure a lesser punishment. As a result, Colin is no longer Cambridge bound but the pair find themselves aboard a prison ship headed for Australia and Patrick isn't quite as grateful as Colin had hoped. Over time, the men's relationship builds into something despite Patricks attempts to hold Colin at arm's length.
This was just such an engaging story and I was very quickly drawn into their world. KA does a great job of describing the scenery, the characters and their emotions and it was all so easy for me to imagine. There were times where I could happily have banged Patrick and Colin's heads together to get some sense slapped into them but it all added to the tension.
Although this is not the life that either man had envisioned, things do work out in their favour and there's a happy ending for all involved. I'd definitely recommend giving this book a go.

I loved the place where this story took me.
It is amazing to think that 185 years ago you would have to travel for days, riding, to get from one place to another a few miles away or even several months if one continent to another.
To think what it meant to live in a farm, miles away from the nearest town without cars! To buy food, clothes, essentials, you would have to prepare yourself for a few days trip, with enough food and water to survive in the middle of nowhere.
How incredible is that? to be transported in time and let yourself be carried away by this fascinating and at the same time bizarre world.
Times where people were arrested for "buggery", hanged or exiled from their country. Well, Am I not happy to be living in 2018?
The fact is that the atmosphere created here has surprised me in a very good way. Wrapped in a cocoon kind of way.
.) I really enjoyed the romance.
.) Enough steam with a 9 year gap between the guys - which I am a sucker for.
.) Two hot cowboys very well crafted.
.) Unique secondary characters. Well played parts. Emily was such a beautiful character! Even the Australian aborigines made a good impression on me.
.) I loved the pace at which the story unfolded. It felt real.
.) Fantastic world building.
