Welcome to Sutton Station: One of the world’s largest working farms in the middle of Australia – where if the animals and heat don’t kill you first, your heart just might.
Charlie Sutton runs Sutton Station the only way he knows how; the way his father did before him. Determined to keep his head down and his heart in check, Charlie swears the red dirt that surrounds him – isolates him – runs through his veins.
American agronomy student Travis Craig arrives at Sutton Station to see how farmers make a living from one of the harshest environments on earth. But it’s not the barren, brutal and totally beautiful landscapes that capture him so completely, it’s the man with the red dirt heart.
Please note: This book is set in Australia, using Australian English and lingo.
I could not finish this story because of the narration so please refer to Brandilyn’s review of the ebook which can be found here.
OK so I freely admit that this is most likely a case of it’s me, not you, but this narration did not work for me at all. The accents were odd and clearly a non-native trying for realistic and missing the mark. As someone who lived in Texas for years, I really struggled with Travis’s twang. I also struggled with the overall tone of the story not quite hitting the emotions. Everything was not horrible, but it was not right. And for a book I loved, I could not finish the narration as I would rather remember these men they way they were in my head when I fell in love with their story the first time.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
