Jessica
Grab a box of tissues because this is Courtenay at his best. This book is about everything we, as human beings hold dear....love, family, pride, friendship and the basic need of survival. An Australian classic set in the New South Wales outback, spanning from the outbreak of World War One through to the Depression, this book will evoke emotions you didn't think you had. It follows the life of Jessica, a young girl in the bush who must keep her head held high and fight for truth, justice and the true meaning of love. Uplifting and heart breaking all mixed into one must read novel. - Belinda

Favourite book of all time!!
This is the life story of a girl from the outback. Set in early times when cars were a luxury, it follows her journey through life, love, loss and betrayal. This book has everything and tells an amazing tale. Be prepared to laugh, cry and smile your way through this book. Trust me on this, I have read it 6 times since I was 13. Definately my favourite book!!
