    • The Land of Golden Wattle by J.H. Fletcher is a great colonial Australian read set in Tasmania where the sun often shines on the golden wattle every Winter/Spring.I enjoyed hearing about Agfest, trout fishing, the Derwent and other unique aspects of Tasmania and Australia where we are never far from the sound of kookaburra calling to us from a distant gum tree.This is also an epic tale of early days of the Australian gold rush and what it meant to several generations.Excellent reading and writin [...]


    • The Land of Golden Wattle by J.H. Fletcher is an epic read over the generations that I enjoyed with the setting and characters mainly in Tasmania Australia. I usually like books that change the time setting chapter by chapter, but this one had three time periods going at once so did get a little mind boggling at times for me. Luckily I read it in a few days (school holidays at the moment in Aust!) – if I had been reading it at a busy time in my life, I think I would have found it hard to keep [...]


    • Set in the Australian gold rush days this is another great read from one of my favourite authors. I did however find the constant changing from one generation to another quite tiresome. It works with two generations but with such a number of different characters from different periods I found it confusing and, at times, hard to follow. Otherwise well worth reading.

This myriad of traits follows two branches of the family line down through the years, begin [...]


    • I really enjoyed this book, it is a journey over several generations. Secrets ,ambition and an awful lot of very determined and interesting characters. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Australian history and family sagas.


    • Land of Golden Wattle is a very entertaining novel, written in what I am beginning to recognise as J.H. Fletcher's fast paced and easy to read style. The story switches back and forth through multiple time frames, telling of the romance, tragedies, double crossings, lies and deceit in the lives of Emma Tregallas and Ephraim Dark, and their descendants.From the 20,000 acres originally granted to Emma and a herd of imported merino sheep, Derwent has prospered and survived through the generations t [...]
