Io de un granjero Ambas deberán seguir su destino en una tierra a la ue se compara con el paraíso Pero ¿hallarán el amor y la felicidad en el extremo opuesto del mundo A romantic saga set in the mid to late 1800s in New Zealand The first in a series it centres on the lives of two very different young women each embarking from Wales on a new life in one of the colonies While they are from vastly different backgrounds Gwyneira a lord’s daughter and Helen a struggling governess they are both destined to marry men they have never met in this new land of sheep farming at the end of the world Lark’s story covers not only the individual struggles of these two women in a foreign land but also the fate of the orphan girls Helen was charged with chaperoning to New Zealand as servants and the conflicts between the Maori natives and the pakeha—the colonists Multi generational in scope the depiction of New Zealand’s landscape and the natural environment is accurate and evocative The concept of the novel is really promising particularly if you like historical fiction however the elementary writing and predictability of the plot made it a disappointing read There are LOTS of clichés and I started to really roll my eyes towards the end and became very impatient to get to the end and on to something else Recommend if you love easy historical romance stories
