    • Friday 13th January 1939 – Black Friday when it seemed the whole state of Victoria was ablaze. In the days before, Neville Darling had found himself in the little town of Mackenzie Crossing. Neville was affectionately known as “Pom” and his great passion was photography. He found pointing his camera would soothe and calm his mind; the continual nightmares of the Great War would recede a little. So when he saw the enigmatic young woman framed in the doorway of the hostelry in Mackenzie Cros [...]


    • I found Mackenzie Crossing to be a brilliant read - it was extremely well done. The 1939 Black Friday bushfires were horrific and the way the people dealt with it at the time was amazing. Neville’s relationship with those on the mountain is most memorable. But this is also a tale about secrets, both past and present, with the impact it has on those we love or can’t help loving. As Skye struggles to unravel the mystery behind her biological grandfather, in the contrastingly frozen and wintry [...]


    • Just finished reading this book today, January 12, one day before the 78th anniversary of the Black Friday bush fires in 1939. Noting the heat here in Queensland today, one can only imagine the danger and devastation of bush fires in January here in Australia, particularly in Victoria where this story is set. This story, my first by Kaye Dobbie, has two (or more!) stories intertwined between 1939 and 1997 with the story going to other years on and off as Skye, a photographer in 1997, tries to fi [...]




    • Kaye Dobbie is my new favourite author. Beautifully written, the story made you want to keep reading. Loved the characters. This book is quite like Colours of Gold and reminded me slightly of Joy Dettman and the Woody Creek Series.


    • It's been a stinky hot weekend with little sleep, but I couldn't stop reading this lovely book. Now finished, I keep thinking back on it, the setting, the characters, the excellent story telling.I came across this book at work and the mention of the Black Friday fires in Victoria immediately peaked my interest. One of my enduring memories of my grandfather is sitting around the dinner table listening to his tales of being trapped in the 1939 fires and having to seek refuge in a mine shaft.This b [...]


    • Kaye Dobbie is one of my (many!) favourite Australian authors. Published in 2016, it is the third book written by Dobbie. While I thoroughly enjoyed Sweet Wattle Creek and Willow Tree Bend, I found this one didn’t quite hit the spot for me. It was still quiescently Australian as Dobbie took the reader backwards and forwards in time, dealing with bushfires, the aftermath of the Great War and second chances. Set primarily in the rural country towns of MacKenzie Crossing and Elysian Melbourne, it [...]


    • A good, but reasonably basic read - I would give it 3.5 if I could. I was surprised to see the rating over 4, which is rare for this sort of book. It is possibly my expectations were unreasonably high due to the high rating.




    • An entertaining read based in the Victorian Ranges. It has a bit of action, some mystery and a romance. What's not to like.



    • I love an historical novel based around true events, with a bit of romance and suspense thrown in. And if it includes two different storylines from two different eras, all the better! This book covered all that and more. Fast paced, likeable characters, although the lead female was a bit annoying. I have read a few of Kaye Dobbie books, and have enjoyed every one. Looking forward to her next novel!


    • Having listened to stories from my father of Black Friday I was most interested to read this book and especially as I have enjoyed other books by the author. I found the descriptions of life in the bush excellent and especially of the approaching bush fires. I great read involved many different characters and each with their only special story.
