Powerful story telling.
So glad I discovered Peter Watt. Cry of the Curlew was an epic journey and is just the start. So looking forward to devouring the rest of the books in this series and others.
Truly gripping story
Peter Watts has written a real gripping story that cannot be put down. The characters, plots and suspense at every new chapter will serve to encourage reading the next book in the series. It is also well written, easy to read and and will keep the reader entertained throughout. Well worth the price of admission.
Cry of the curlew
What a great read! Opened my eyes to a relatively unknown part of Australian. Peter Watt is a talented author, every Australian would enjoy, and should read this book.
