Review- Currawong Creek takes us on a journey of self discovery and sacrifice when Clare finds herself in a situation that she never thought she would see herself in. With her career being her main focus for so many years, Clare follows her heart and takes a step back to help little Jack. Little does she realize, she helps herself too.
Jennifer did a great job with the storyline. I found it heart-warming, touching and intense in some places. It was dramatic in all the right places and had a wonderfully written romantic side also. I had a real connection to this story in the fact that Clare feels drawn to her grandfathers property. Even though I have my home with my family, it doesn't really feel like 'home'. I often miss my grandparents farm quite a lot so I really enjoyed having that connection to the book.
The diverse range of characters throughout the book were realistic and full of depth. They almost seemed real to me.
All in all Jennifer delivered a wonderful story that many women will love and I highly recommend that you all get yourselves a copy.
