back of the book reads:
gina was a city girl, sophisticated and worldly;cyrus brandt was one of the biggest cattle barons in western australia. perhaps it was the attraction of opposites, but from the first moment she set eyes on him gena couldn't ignore cy. true, the attraction she felt towards him was mixed equally with fury and antagonism at his masterful, overbearing ways; certainly love didn't enter into it at all. then fate decreed that a distant relative should leave gena the property right next door to cy's mighty cattle holding, bauhinia junction. wasn't he going to be rather too near at hand for her peace of mind.
this is my favorite book by margaret way. one of 4 top books from this writer. in this book gena may be describe as worldly but, in actual fact she is a very youthful sophisticate. she has more of a charming air at some moments and then she turns into a child. gena has style and grace and is a talented commercial artist. when she meets cy he is thinking she is someone he knows. cy becomes her hero on that first night and they kiss. a kiss both remember. some time later gena inherits a property and cy becomes a sort of watch dog over her. but, as she shows a strength of character and a willingness to stick it out he shows her more attention then just being a neighbor. gena meets his neice who is unable to speak due to a tradgedy and becomes her loving friend. both main characters have other friends of interest and slowly show signs of love for one another. i'm an old school romantic that enjoyed the story because it didn't have the evil character ready to destroy the relationship. each character brings with them a part of the story that enriches the enjoyment of the book.
