Cheyenne Blue delivers a lengthy and enduring story of fighting for what is right even when it conflicts with the things you want.
Nina is a single mother who is raising her daughter, Phoebe, on a farm that provides a place for local children to come and learn about rural life. An accident on the farm threatens their livelihood and requires Nina to seek law services for protection.
Leigh is a sophisticated big city lawyer who is the right person for the job, but Nina does not have the funds to secure her help.
I enjoyed the story over all. It was a solid plot with an interesting way things were handled in the end that I wasn’t suspecting. I was intrigued by the conflict of interest between Lawyer/Client and the decisions that were made because of it.
I did not like Leigh in the beginning. She was way too uptight and condescending. I never quite got behind her 180 degree personality change that wasn’t really believable. But I was able to accept it and move on and enjoy the rest of the book.
This is also very Australian. There were so many things that I didn’t understand. Gumboots, bickies, and singlets to just name a few.
Overall, this was a good story, written very well, with an OK romance.
I recommend to those who like to read about romance, farms, animals, law, will they/wont they relationships, rags vs. riches relationships, and fantastic views of the Sydney harbor.
