I've read several of Carol's books now and I love the way she creates full characters and lives and stories from the details she has unearthed from her own ancestry. It really gives you a sense of what life might have been like in the early days of Australia for these people. I was glad to hear that Carol's next novel, Truly Free, is a follow on from Tangled Secrets, because while I really enjoyed the read and kept wondering what would happen left, some things were left unresolved. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this story when Truly Free is released in June this year. If you love to read about the pioneering days of Australia's history, you'll love Tangled Secrets.
I read 'Tangled Secrets' by Carol Preston late last year, and enjoyed it very much. These characters were believable in both the historical context and setting. There was a good flow to this story, and I loved that the romance was unexpected, just like it happens in 'real life'. I recommend 'Tangled Secrets' for a great historical read.
This is the third book in this series and we see more about the early days in Australia. This time we focus on Beth who has reunited with her father in Australia but it's not all she hoped. She ends up marrying and its not all she hoped for. While I enjoyed the story and the more I read the better it got I did find at times early it took a little longer to get into the story but as I continued the book got better and better. I have been trying to put a finger on what was different from Mary's Guardian and this book and realise it is the history, In the first book we learn a lot of the history of the time and learn historical facts where this book has a little of the history but is more focused on the story. I think myself I miss the historical facts of the time. I am looking forward to reading the last book in the series. Good read.
