This book was so good. I could tell from the way Fiona Palmer writes about these people and places that she knows her stuff. Roz Groves – Goodreads
Without giving away too much of the plot, The Sunburnt Country is a story about love and loss, courage and reflection which grows out of a town with deep roots, characters who are well fleshed out and conflict that had this reader fighting back tears at emotionally moving scenes. A heart-warming ending left me wanting to pick up another Palmer novel very soon! Lauren Murphy – Goodreads
