    Heart-warming & engrossing tale of love & triumph

    A beautifully written and engrossing tale of love, endurance and adversity in the Victorian goldfields. Meticulously researched with a hero and heroine who were so well matched and deserving of each other that I couldn’t stop smiling for days. Another huge pleasure for me was that there was nothing predictable in each turn of events, or in the ending. It was, quite simply, a marvellous, nail-biting, tear-jerking, joyful and heart-warming story.

    Historical Fiction Australian

    1871 Australia, Adelaide Greaves is an English widow she and her young son Danny live in the small mining town of Maiden's Creek in Victoria and she works as a postmistress. It’s not easy for a single woman with a young son to live in a rough mining town in the gold fields and Adelaide has her best friend Netty for support. Battle weary ex confederate soldier Caleb Hunt, arrives in town in search of gold and he’s trying to escape his past. There’s a terrible accident, a man is injured at the local mine and they desperately need a sober doctor. Caleb is a qualified doctor, he doesn’t want to work as one as he’s seen enough death and dying during the American Civil War to last him a life time and he does the right thing and takes care of the wounded miner. Adelaide and Caleb both have pasts, secrets and Australia is the perfect place to live or hide and start again. Caleb and Adelaide are very attacked to each other, just when the both feel like they can move forward, start a romantic relationship and Richard Barnwell arrives in town. Adelaide has to tell Caleb the truth about Richard, it affects her son Danny and Richard Barnwell is a very nasty man. When Danny goes missing, Adelaide and Caleb need to find him and it’s during a dangerous bush fire. Alison Stuart explains exactly what it’s like to be caught up in an Australian bush fire; they spread very quickly, strong winds make them very unpredictable, with out any warning they can change direction and the smoke from the fire extremely dangerous. I enjoyed reading The Postmistress, my only regret is I didn’t read it first and then read The Goldminer’s Sister after; but I still really enjoyed the book and gave it four stars.

    A great read.

    I really enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down. The storyline was great, with a bit of mystery thrown in. The relationship between the two main characters was a beautiful evolving of two people who needed to be valued for themselves despite their pasts. A really good read.
