Published by The Book Club, London Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Very good book in fresh clean turquoise covers with black titles to spine; slight bumps to lower fore corners. Internally very fine and free of inscriptions. A very attractive copy. Condition: Good Plus. I enjoyed the description of the Australian setting and even enjoyed learning all the details about wine making. But all the characters were hard to love for me because of both their actions and INactions and the foolish choices they kept making.

And that's exactly what made me love the ending so much. I'm so glad I stuck with this book thanks in large part to it being superbly written throughout becau I love Dorothy Eden's books, but I went back and forth on this one all the way up to the end. I'm so glad I stuck with this book thanks in large part to it being superbly written throughout because the payoff in the end—while heartrending and absolutely not a HEA—left me feeling satisfied and happy for the characters for the most part. Highly recommended for anyone who loves complicated characters and doesn't like their fiction all tied up neatly in a perfect bow.

I hope I pull off Gothic family sagas at least half as well. Another good solid read from Eden. Michele's review here pretty much mirrors my own thoughts, so I'll pass on trying to rewrite it. Sep 04, Elise rated it it was amazing. I really liked this book. But I wonder what went on in Dorothy Eden's life that made her repeatedly write about cheating husbands and wives. Jul 22, Nae rated it really liked it. I enjoyed this one, but the ending seemed sort of rushed. Oct 02, Anneceleste rated it liked it Shelves: dorothy-eden.

My reading summer has been dedicated to Dororthy Eden. I've read nine of her books from the end of June until today. Her style of writing is compelling and addictive to me. Her characters are not portrayed as perfect and several times are irritating. In one or two books there are characters who should be punished for their behavior view spoiler [ the earl of Monkshood in The Millionaire's Daughter is a pervert and yet he is not in the least incommoded hide spoiler ]. This book is one that I did My reading summer has been dedicated to Dororthy Eden. This book is one that I didn't enjoy much.

It is about the life of British in Australia on early The heroine moved from Britain to get married with a vigneron. She was never in her whole life happy with her emigration. The children who were born in Australia act and feel as real natives. It is interesting but a little melancholic.

To be truthful I cannot imagine why this book was on the NYT best-selling list for four months. The plot of the book free me in and added to that was the fact that it took place in colonial Australia and I was hooked, or thought I was. I was to disappointed to read the entire thing. I did skip and skim my way to the end so I know I probably missed something meaningful but I couldn't work up enough curiosity to go back and pick it up. The plot and location had so much potential but I just didn't have any feelings for the characters, even though I really wanted to.

I kept feeling like it had to be me, I just needed to keep reading. After all it was on the NYT for four months, who am I not to see this book as wonderful. Well I am still me and I just don't get it. The book is long and slow, the heroine is a clueless, spineless, milksop. The husband I didn't use hero on purpose is clueless, thoughtless, manipulative, emotionally cruel and through all the years of the book the characters don't grow. The author can paint a beautiful scene with words I enjoyed the historical asp of the story.

For his wife he has chosen Eugenia from a "proper" British family. The family drama is predictable. Gilbert has a lifetime affair with the head housekeeper. The housekeeper's daughter marries Gilbert's son Kit. The daughter, Adelaide, mar I read historical fiction to learn more about a time period in history that is not familiar to me. The daughter, Adelaide, marries Jem, the former convict who will take over the vineyard know that Kit has been disinherited. My disappointment is in the shallowness of the characters, Eugenia, has a fling as well but it is ended by her husband while he continues in his own clandestine affair.

I wanted to throttle Eugenia for not standing up for herself.
