With shades of Water for Elephants and True Grit, a stunning debut novel set in the Australian outback about a female horse thief, her bid for freedom, and the two men trying to capture her. It is 1921. In a mountain-locked valley, Jessie is on the run. Born wild and brave, by twenty-six she has already lived life as a circus rider, horse and cattle rustler, and convict. But on this fateful night she is just a woman wanting to survive though there is barely any life left in her. Two men crash through the bushland, desperate to claim the reward on her head: one her lover, the other the law. But as it has always been for Jessie, it is death, not a man, who is her closest pursuer and companion. And while all odds are stacked against her, there is one who will never give up on her?her own child, who awaits her.

This is a well written first novel set in the Australian frontier with wonderful plot twists. Reads like an American Western with an unforgettable main character. The author's personal history with how she came to write this novel is fascinating.

Despite an unusual choice of narrator, this was a good book. It offered good storytelling with a haunting atmosphere. I especially loved the last third of the book which included a good ending. It's a bit bleak but it completely suits the story.
