Indigo Storm- Synopsis
I have been wanting to read one of Fleur McDonald’s books for quite some time, as I grew up in rural NSW and found the setting of her books interesting. I found my copy of Indigo Storm at Kmart and I am so happy with my purchase.
This book was everything I hoped it would be and more. It had a rich story line with twists and turns, and likeable characters that portrayed rural small town living quite well. To me the book reminded me of watching a season of McLeod’s Daughter’s (if you haven’t heard of it look it up) and I loved McLeod’s Daughters!
Eliza was such a well thought out character. She was complex and strong. I definitely felt that she grew so much through the book and not only discovered who she was but fought with the limitations that held her back for so long.
This is a great novel and I knew it early on when I told my husband that I would be going to bed in two pages time… Five chapters later I had to remind myself that I have small kids who will not allow me to sleep-in so 11.40pm is well past my bed time. Put the book down. Seriously lady stop reading. It was so hard though because it was so good!!!!!
