Sweeping from the stock market crash of 1929 to post-World War II, The Lost Valley covers the lives of Tom and Harry Abbott, twin grandsons of Luke and Belle from Fortune's Son. The estranged brothers follow different paths: Tom becomes a famous flying ace in the war, while Harry reclaims their father's lost fortune. But their lives dramatically intertwine when they fall in love with the same women: strong, compassionate Emma and grasping, nefarious Kitty.
As in Fortune's Son, the author's descriptive powers pulled me right into the settings in Tasmania and England during that eventful twenty-year period in history. But the strength of this book lies with its complex characters and suspenseful plot, leading to a literally breath-stealing ending. (You'll be tempted to jump ahead, but don't spoil it!)
I don't know how the author manages to create so much drama in 334 pages, but she does. It's almost magical. You will love this story and want more. Thankfully, there's a third book in this series. I hope it arrives soon!
As in Fortune's Son, there are no explicit sex scenes, and the language is appropriate for all readers. Highly recommended.
After reading "Fortunes Son" I went immediately the purchase this sequel.
Fortune’s Son #1 – So sad and so heartbreaking, the heartwarming multiple storylines about Tasmania, her culture and her creatures was so interesting and intriguing; it was another hard to put down story. The well-written characters, the author’s vivid descriptions, and talented storytelling abilities place the reader deep into the weave of a beautiful tapestry of love, sacrifice and the culture and wildlife of Tasmania, with glimpses of AU. Bear is my favorite character next to Tasmania. 5*
The Lost Valley #2 – This story begins in 1929 with most of the family involved from Fortune’s Son. This book is so sad and so heartbreaking, as well as so heartwarming, intriguing, interesting and uplifting. The vivid descriptions woven with the old and new storylines make a substantial tapestry of love and sacrifice amongst the history of Tasmania, her people and her creatures and her culture. The 600 plus pages just flew by and I could not put this book down until I read the last page. I chain read all the books I had by this author and never once was bored or tired of reading about AU and Tasmania. the excitement over finding such a talented and creative storyteller/author never stopped. Rereading these books in the future, which is something I seldom do anymore, is a certain possibility. 5*
The Tasmanian Tales end.
