Burning Fields

Pt in Australia until he meets Rosie Her easy going nature and positive outlook help him forget the life he’s escaped But as their relationship grows so do tensions between the two families until the situation becomes explosive When a long hidden family secret is discovered and Tomas’s mysterious past is revealed everything Rosie believes is shattered Will she risk all to rebuild her family or will she lose the only man she’s ever lov I was approached by author Alli Sinclair to review her latest novel Burning Fields I was interested in reading about Rosie Alli Sinclair s independent heroine So I reuested an ARC which was sent to me by the publisher via Net GalleyAs the novel opens in the post WWII era Australian Rosie Stanton has been living on her own in Brisbane and is accustomed to making her own decisions but harassment at her job has forced her to return to the family farm I found her situation very relatable from the outset Other American readers may have a similar reaction since the MeToo movement has increased awareness of workplace harassment Sexist attitudes were pervasive during this period Rosie had to fight for respect from her father and the surrounding communitySome wonderful exceptions to the denigration of women were the hero Tomas Conti and his family who owned the farm next door to the Stantons As Italians they were victims of prejudice mainly resulting from Italy having been an enemy during WWII Yet Rosie s father had personal reasons for his animus against Italians This anti Italian bigotry was one of the obstacles in the path of HEA for Rosie and TomasI thought that Burning Fields was a beautiful and moving romance Rosie s feminism and the foregrounding of post WWII antagonism against immigrants from countries that had been Axis Powers may cause readers to think about these issuesFor my complete review see

1948 The world is struggling to regain a sense of balance after the devastation of World War II and the sugar cane growing community of Piri River in northern ueensland is no exception As returned servicemen endeavour to adjust to their pre war lives women who had worked for the war effort are expected to embrace traditional roles once Rosie Stanton finds it difficult to return to the family farm after years working for the Australian Women 35 starsI ll admit I decided to read this book because it sounded like it would be a nice little romance taking place in Australia a few years after World War 2 I was actually pleasantly surprised to see there was so much going on with the story and it had some substance Rosie Stanton has returned home to her family s sugar cane farm in ueensland She wants to help her father out by doing the books but he seems to think a woman doesn t have any business working on the farm He also isn t happy Rosie has met Italian immigrant Tomas Conti whose family owns the neighboring farm And while the war might be over scars still remain that might prevent everyone from moving on with their livesThe story went back and forth between Rosie in 1948 Australia and Tomas in Italy during the war The book deals with some heavy subjects including sexism racism and substance abuse which really add depth to the story Definitely recommend as a romance because the chemistry between Rosie and Tomas is good but there s also enough to the story to enjoy as just a general fiction historical fiction novel as well I won a free advance digital copy from a giveaway I was under no obligation to post a review and all views expressed are my honest opinion
