Daughter of the Murray

Secret Conor Foley who offers Georgina apparent security a marriage with status in the emerging nouveau riche echelons of Melbourne But none of them could imagine the toll the changing political and social landscape would have on homes hearts and families Will Georgina’s path lead her into grave danger and unhappiness or will she survive and fulfil her destiny In terms of writing style it is five stars Darry Fraser can certainly string words togetherFor me though I really disliked Georgina She was that combination of ignorance and pride that I really hate Always fighting the world like she knows what s going on while being completely ignorant And in her ignorance she made some really stupid decisionsAnd the whole romance between Georgie and Dane just didn t work Romance books often have people dislike each other at first while their bodies are saying yes heshe s the one but usually the head starts catching up with the body This didn t seem to happen They didn t really have any good moments together where they see each other s good sides They just fought Georgie never trusted Dane completely disliked him and fought him at every opportunityThey slept together and Georgie was certain it was just because he wanted the business and Jacaranda so she ran away He came after her and they slept together again and then she was once again certain he had bad intentions and went back to Melbourne It was only when she discovered she was pregnant that she went after him and they got married It didn t exactly make me excited that they were tying the knotThen we had the whole real dad turning up and by then I just wanted the book overI felt Fraser s intention was to support feminism but Georgie needed to be a better character for that to happen In this she comes across as a bratty teenager who really needs to grow up before being given any responsibility I m glad she didn t end up running the business because she really would have destroyed it It wasn t right for her but she stubbornly dug her heels in because she didn t like being told she couldn t do something

1890s River Murray Northern VictoriaGeorgina Calthorpe is unhappy living with her indifferent foster family the MacHenry’s in their crumbling house on the banks of the River Murray Unlike the rest of the family she isn’t looking forward to the return of prodigal son Dane With good reason Dane MacHenry is furious when on his return he finds his homestead in gr starsThe title of Australian author Darry Fraser s novel Daughter of Murray caught my eye even before it hit bookstores I have a weakness for Australian historical fiction and after reading a couple of novels in the past set around the iconic Murray River region I was keen to delve into this offering from new author Darry FraserTaking place around the Murray River region Northern Victoria in the 1890 s Daughter of the Murray introduces us to heroine Georgina Calthorpe Georgina is a free spirited and a somewhat impetuous young woman who lives with her foster family the MacHenry s on their dilapidated homestead This sprawling property nestles the banks of the River Murray When the book opens the MacHenry s are struggling to keep their sheep run property afloat Hope comes in the form of the news that the MacHenry s beloved son Dane is due to return home which lifts their spirits For Georgina Dane s return isn t welcomed at all and when he arrives he immediately casts blame on Georgina for the sorry state of affairs at home Furious with Dane Georgina plots her escape and succeeds in making a run for it She makes the mistake of taking Dane s beloved horse with her and he follows her While making her escape Georgina crosses paths with a gentleman who will ultimately change her fate forever Connor Foley a businessman from Melbourne cannot resist the charms of Georgina and proposes an offer of marriage to her soon after they meet Upon returning to Melbourne with Connor Georgina begins to uestion if she made the right choice in entering into a marriage in haste It is obvious Georgina is harbouring love for another and ambitions for a very different life to the one she is livingDaughter of the Murray was an enjoyable read that payed perfect homage to an era and locale in which it is set the late 1800 s around the River Murray I always lap up Australian historical fiction novels and this historical romance with a hint of adventure appealed to me immediatelyDarry Fraser has recreated life in Australia 1800 s highlighting both the male and female experience with care and attention to detail Through Georgina who is a feisty heroine we see clearly how women at this time were restricted by society s rules and norms This part of the novel gives Fraser the room to explore a little of the emerging suffragette movement in Australia which was enlightening to read We also learn about transport in this era and how the paddle steamers ruled the waters of the Murray this was my personal favourite part of the novelFraser s characters are well drawn Georgina is full of life her personality seems to adapt throughout the course of the novel by her rich experiences She makes the transformation from a naive but spirited young girl to a strong and independent woman over the progression of the novel She is matched with male protagonists Dane and Connor who offer the reader a glimpse into the lives of men in this tumultuous eraDaughter of the Murray is a very good Australian saga offering a fantastic picture of a highly interesting period in Australia s history but it is heavy on the romance So if you are a fan of historical romances this book should be high on your to read list I did find the romance and subseuent sexual tension between the main characters seemed to overshadow the wonderful historical narrative at some points in the novel Perhaps these are my own personal feelings though as novels heavy on romanceheat are not always to my taste Despite my misgivings on the romance side of this novel I am still very happy to endorse this novel as a solid read
