Heart of Thornton Creek

1, Queensland Chronicles

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


After falling for a handsome young Australian named Daniel Thornton, Rebecca Williams gives up her life in high society Boston and follows him to his father's cattle station deep in the bush country of late 1800s Queensland. 

As she acclimates herself to her new surroundings and her new family, Rebecca is unpleasantly surprised to find that Daniel's father, Bertram, not only runs the prosperous cattle station, but also runs his son's life. And his influence doesn't stop there. It seems to Rebecca that Bertram oppresses his wife, his servants, his ranch hands, and even the rest of the townsfolk in Thornton Creek! Can Rebecca adjust to her awkward surroundings? Will she ever be able to get along with Bertram's bullying? Or will he drive Rebecca and Daniel apart once and for all?

Customer Reviews

An Aussie Welcome?

WOW!! All of the Neville Shute books I've read and loved never left me with quite the awe I experienced from "Heart of Thornton Creek." I not only recommend this for people to read, but I would suggest it as a book to delve into for guidance as well as entertainment.

Bonnie Leon became a favored writer of mine from the first book of hers that I read ("To Love Anew"), but I enjoyed this book more than any other of hers I have enjoyed. Well written with a clean, wholesome story line which is evidenced through Christ-centered lives of the characters and God working in their situations.

All things are possible

Beautifully written and inspiring. Even in fiction God speaks to our hearts.
All things are possible through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.

Heart of Thornton Creek
