    Georgie Calthorpe had been living with her Uncle Tom, Aunt Jemimah and cousin Elspeth at the homestead Jacaranda on the Murray River for the past few years and was terribly unhappy The house had fallen into disrepair the stock and grazing were negligible her only pleasure was riding the few remaining horses MacNamara and Douglas were the two she favoured, though MacNamara was the one she rode most often But the day the son of the household, Dane MacHenry arrived home after four years absence was the day it all changed for Georgie In view of Dane s anger at the state of the homestead, and blaming Georgie for its decline, she decided to flee But Georgie was an innocent and na ve young woman, not used to the way of the country away from the security of the place she d called home Meanwhile Dane was livid to discover Georgie had fled with his beloved horse, MacNamara He gave chase, heading for Echuca where he was sure she would be holed up Conor Foley was an astute businessman who owned and ran paddle steamers up and down the Murray River, delivering supplies to the outlying communities He also had his eye on Georgie for his wife What ...

    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 Fraser.Taking 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 ...

    Darry Fraser s debut book broke new ground for me I think the catchphrase for this, and other books set in the same period, has become Oztorical a descriptor for a historical novel set in Australia at a time when freight was via the Mighty Murray River, and women had yet landed the right to vote though there were some hardy souls trying to blaze that trail.So this book was quite an education Too often I don t think enough about those women who went before me, and what my life might have been like in another time and place All these freedoms I take for granted like being able to own or ride a horse if I want, work if I want, own property and be involved in a business life wasn t always this way.So this book has opened my eyes, quite apart from keeping me highly entertained for hours in recent days.I fell at home immediately with the Murray River setting, and with Dane and Georgina and their struggles I like that it does not take an entire book to resolve the early plot line that Dane returning to the family farm of Jacaranda where Georgina lives has b...

    Like the Murray River itself, the central motif of Daughter of the Murray South Australian author Darry Fraser gives us a tale that flows effortlessly for the reader, but it s not without its snags and hidden obstacles for its hero and heroine Fraser does an excellent job of bringing the landscape vividly to life and touching on some of the late 19th century social issues in a way which is not h...
