  • Interesting, thought provoking and easy read

    1890 suffragists! Pioneering the Murray River. A child born out of wedlock. Money and mysterious 'means'. Hopes. Desires and a really stinky, yucky baddie. ‘Where the Murray River Runs’ was an easy read. And a substantial read. Certain parts dragged a bit – the misunderstanding between the two young loves in particular – but, apart from that, it was a well-paced historical fiction with many twists and much to learn and ponder. How remarkable to read, and ultimately contemplate, the beginning of the suffrage movement via first-hand experience. This was a delicate but solid part of the storyline as the secondary main characters, as well as the protagonist, Linely, are very dedicated to the development of women’s rights. They run numerous refuges for the beaten and the broken women of the time in three Victorian towns. I particularly found this fascinating. The development of a side female character was warmly welcomed. The description of the rural homes and furniture, a delight and the idea of Chinese vegetable growers being so substantially good at what they did, thought-provoking. I found the ending a little unsatisfying, in so far as, the poor guy Ard (I didn’t enjoy reading his name actually – I often mistook it for And) would never physically be able to undertake what he agreed to, even if he lived to be a 100. But hey.. when you’re in love and very relieved, I do agree one thinks one is ‘6’ 10” and bulletproof’ – as my Dad would say - and would want to do anything the beloved says. (Perhaps that is a spoiler ….but surely we all know the two main characters will always find a way to be back together by the end, don’t we? ) A nice read. Highly recommended if you are someone who enjoys easy summer reading about some wonderful Australian characteristics and regions, history and developments.

  • Where the Murray river runs

    A pleasant easy to read book. Very similar to others I have read. The background theme of the book highlights the terrible conditions some women had to live under world wide. Good social history.
