This book is not what it seems. I expected it to be a romance, spiced up with some vivid dialogue and great descriptions, but then it takes a more unpleasant turn, when some characters begin to show their true nature, and there are revelations about Jessica's past and Darcy's ending.
Around a third of the way through, however, there is a quite unexpected spiritual turn. There is some very powerful writing in these parts.
I was disappointed that Rossi didn't come to a particularly nasty ending, but it would not have fitted the way the book turned out.

Especially recommended for those people who like to consider themselves as more spiritually aware than the average person.

What a rich tapestry, what a great read! A young woman returned to Australia's Outback, facing the tribulations of that demanding environment, and at the same time trying to find herself. Emmett is such a talented author, sensitive, perceptive and writes with such love about this country. I recommend this book highly.

The wild and often cruel landscape of the Australian outback is expertly captured in The land Beyond Goodbye. From the beginning of the story it is obvious that the author has an affinity with this untamed landscape and uses this knowledge to bring together a skilful and at times spiritually moving story of one woman's gradual awakening into what is significant and meaningful in her life.
Interestingly, the story is not as it first appears, I expected a love story, but what I got was a multi layered and quite intricate narrative, which blended mystery, mysticism and complexity to really good effect. At times the quirkiness of the characterisation left me a little bit unsure, as some of the main protagonists are not easily likeable, however as the story progresses and the characters start to blend together, the story then becomes a detailed and perceptive look at human nature.

This is my first book by Barbara Scott Emmett and as I enjoyed it so much I am sure I will be looking out for more of her work in the future.

As an Australian living away from home for twenty years, Land Beyond Goodbye was like a nostalgic trip home for me. From the way the author captures the essence of the barren, unfriendly, though exotic outback, and her use of Aussie jargon, I knew she had to have been there. As the tension built, I became engrossed in Jess's story into this foreign land, and the heroine's perception of herself as she faces up to some harsh truths. A delightfully spiritual journey.

THE inner self is what spiritual books tackle, but here's some fiction that led me into that vast human arena. The Land Beyond Goodbye, by Barbara Scott-Emmett, does this while relating a fascinating tale about a woman who finds herself (both literally and figuratively) in the remote Australian Outback. Here she learns from the ancient people, Aborigines of the Northern Territory, some eternal truths our modern world seems to have lost or forgotten.
Beautifully written, this novel grips heart and soul. I considered it unusual in its themes, also easy to read.
This author knows her stuff as a writer. She explores the personal realms by means of creating compelling characters. What's more, this is one of those books that had me thinking about it long after the end. Five stars!

Though at times the spoken jargon was so intensely "Aussie" I was left scratching my head, the sense of what was being said always managed to still get through. I found that both amazing and engaging. I also found the narrative descriptions often exotic and beautifully lyrical.

The book was like a visit to a strange new vista and yet swirled across a bedrock sense of authenticity that kept it grounded in possible realities.

I intend to read more of this author's work and see what she does with her language skills in the next story she wants to tell.
