Fantastic compelling read
Another great book from Helene, weaving a story around such an important issue of domestic violence, she captured life in Cooktown so perfectly and I absolutely loved all the characters! It’s a must read!
Love all her books & this is just another one you can't put down!!
Page turner suspence
My admiration for Helene Young just increased out of all proportion with her latest book "Northern Heat". From page one the characters flow without confusion, the story line reaches a crescendo intermixed with poignant issues, not sufficiently related in the media, adding to the struggles in everyday life of human relationships. To me if the author can through words describes scenes and make the reader feel as though they too are actually battling the storm, then success is inevitable. This book has it all. And if you have read her other novels then do so and be prepared to get lost in the pages.
