The Billabong - Jack Byrne

This is an historical, GFY story set in the Australian outback about a widowed rancher and mysterious stranger who saved him from a snake bite. It is a short read. The different setting gave the story an interesting twist. I still have no idea why they swing the tea or why the rancher lived in a tent and not a house. The brush fire was horrifying to think about and the chemistry between the two was well paced and convincing. The point where I had a hiccup was the overwhelming corruption but since I know nothing about Australia in that time period it could very well be a part of the history for the area. All in all, I enjoyed the story.
