The beginning was very slow with too much time dedicated to explaining farming in Australia. It did pick up, but then the focus was on sex until almost the end. While I felt like I really got to know Charlie, the same can’t be said about Travis. There wasn’t enough dialogue to paint a complete picture of why these two fell in love with each other. I still enjoyed the story, to the point of shedding a few tears toward the end, and will continue with the series.
Welcome to Sutton Station: One of the world’s largest working farms in the middle of Australia – where if the animals and heat don’t kill you first, your heart just might.
Charlie Sutton runs Sutton Station the only way he knows how; the way his father did before him. Determined to keep his head down and his heart in check, Charlie swears the red dirt that surrounds him – isolates him – runs through his veins.
American agronomy student Travis Craig arrives at Sutton Station to see how farmers make a living from one of the harshest environments on earth. But it’s not the barren, brutal and totally beautiful landscapes that capture him so completely.
It’s the man with the red dirt heart.
