    6. The back cover of Pamela Cook s Blackwattle Lake reads for those who long to uncover who they used to be, and who they might still become Perfect I love those self discovery stories about as much as I love a coming home to the country story, especially one that is authentic in both setting and character characters so well developed and depicted I could see every one of them.The story of Blackwattle Lake is Eve s to tell for the most part She s a woman forced to return to the country town of her [...]


    7. A lovely debut novel by Pamela Cook set around Eve returning home to her small country town following the death of her estranged mother The reasons behind their estrangement are slowly unearthed throughout the story as Eve battles to come to terms with, and finally move on with her life.I had thought that the story line was heading towards romance, however it was soon apparent that this was about Eve s personal and emotional journey Although I felt the story line was similar to others I d read [...]


    8. What a fantastic debut novel for Pamela Cook I was drawn in to the story from the very beginning as Evie returns in her battered combi to rural Yarrabee, twenty years after abandoning her family, her home, her childhood and adolescence So much has changed and yet so little has changed It s painful to confront the excruciating pain and the guilt of her past, but unless she does, she ll never be able to move on with her life Slowly Evie is drawn back into the web of community, persuaded by a serie [...]


    9. I d say three and a half stars for Aussie fiction in the now popular rural genre It s Pamela Cook s debut novel and it s well written and engaging She stays in the main character s POV Eve throughout but gives good insight to other characters too There s a good unfolding narrative about homecoming, dealing with the past, resolving old hurts and envisioning a new future It s certainly not a traditional romance but has elements of love triangles and the struggles of romantic relationships It was a [...]


    10. Wow Its 1 47am and I ve just finished this book, and am desperately hoping that the rumours that Pamela Cook is writing a sequel are true This book is nothing short of amazing and I very much look forward to reading of Pamela Cook s writing in the future Full review to follow shortly.


    11. I really enjoyed eve s story of struggling to let go, Self forgiveness and acceptance Is it possible the story is not yet finished with two possible story line available to be told


    12. Loved the setting and the fact this novel was about a personal emotion journey other than romance Great read



    13. After her mother s death, Eve returns to the family property she fled 20 years ago Whilst some things have changed, some have remained the same such as the memories she was running away from as a 17 year old.I m having a hard time rating reviewing this book Whilst there were some parts I thoroughly loved, there were other parts that were a hard slog to get through Sometimes Eve was a character you wanted to like, other times you just wanted to slap some sense into her Unfortunately though we did [...]


    14. Read this book in only a couple of days.I loved the whole concept of it not being your typical girl guy heads home to find their true love still pinning away story It was intriguing constantly changing and you could almost picture Blackwattle Lake and what happened there, it was quite erie The homestead sound so much like so many I remember so I could settle into this book so easily.The whole story was just so beautifully written and accurate of country life to a tee.This being Pamela s first bo [...]


    15. Loved it Great writingGREAT WRITING Loved the story We had a cattle dog and Pamela Cook was so descriptive when it came to the dog parts I could just see our Hannah I ve never ever read a book in three days and I loved every bit of this one


    16. Really enjoyed this book Very mysterious and heartbreaking at the same time Reading about the bush fires reminded me of the Black Saturday fires a couple of years back Another great rural book.


    17. At the beginning I thought the story was a typical bad girl returns home and then makes good and finds love, but it was not a romance story at all It turned out to be a good Aussie story centered on the central character that eventually is able to deal with her past.


    18. Excitement and tears as well as loveFabulous sense of place in this well written novel set in the Australian bush Great characters, heart warming story, and one terrific dog


    19. Not a book that I would normally have picked up but thoroughly enjoyed it Could relate to the Australian landscape scenery.


    20. An interesting read A story about a woman coming to terms with her past A solid debut novel Description of the Australian countryside was very well written.
