Book Broadcast is a post I have created to help ease the load of the books I have for review. It is a great way to spread the word, providing recognition to an author or publisher for sending me a book to review. As my reviewing and blogging duties have stepped up a notch in the last year, I don’t often have the time to complete an in depth review. I hope you can discover some new titles to read through this regular book post.
When city naturopath Rilee Summers meets gorgeous farmer Dan Kincaid, sparks fly. A whirlwind romance follows, and the next thing Rilee knows she’s married and living on her husband’s family property in a small rural community.
Never one to shy from a challenge, Rilee is determined to win over her in-laws and the townsfolk of nearby Pallaburra, but her city ways and outspoken views only seem to alienate her further.
Opening her own naturopathy practice has always been her dream. Although Pallaburra isn’t Sydney, and despite the fact she’s not exactly inundated with new clients, she’s not ready to give up. Things get even worse for Rilee when she champions the issue of teen pregnancies in the deeply conservative town.
Worn down by the ill-will towards her and what she sees as Dan’s lack of support, Rilee flees the station to think about the future. Can her marriage survive – or is she destined to leave Dan and move back to the city?
Karly Lane, the author of Six Ways to Sunday and many other fabulous titles, is synonymous with rural fiction. Karly Lane is a great crusader for rural fiction. Lane’s passion for rural communities and writing about small town Australia is evident in all her books and Six Ways to Sunday is no exception. The latest novel from Lane explores the life of a determined young woman who tries to bring about change in a community resistant to change, while at the same time, risking her fresh marriage to a man she is devoted to. As a self confessed fan of rural fiction, I have read many tales of city girls trading life in the big smoke for a chance at love and happiness in the outback. On the outset, Six Ways to Sunday begins a lot like these novels. However, Karly Lane’s talent and authentic insight into life in the bush adds a different spin on a tale that has been told many times over. Six Ways to Sunday is a novel that will pull at your heartstrings and make you think twice about life. It also works to draw our attention to the myriad of issues prevalent in rural communities. It comes complete with a cracker of a final twist and readers will be pleased by the final turn of events that had a great touch of romance.
Six Ways to Sunday by Karly Lane was published on 22nd November 2017 by Allen & Unwin. Details on how to purchase the book can be found here.
