Great story but...

I really enjoyed this book. Great story and well written but if you're going to write about rural Australia, you need to use the right terminology. Paddocks instead of fields, sheds instead of barns, etc. An idea of space and distance would be good too. You can't and don't, walk between farms in Australia.

i need a nickname idea ,

The dry

Great book. I don’t really read much. I bought it for a plane trip and now I have found myself looking for more books by Jane.
