It took me uite a while to settle into this book which I was keen to read given a number of positive reviews from fellow Aussie Readers The first 20 30 pages seemed patchy to me and I felt unclear whether I was reading a romance an historical fiction or Feeling the need to persist I kept reading and found that it eventually settled down into an engaging piece of historical story telling which contained a great mystery Having read many historical novels with two time periods I was intrigued that this book presented times in the early 1800s and early 1900s whereas most novels using this narrative device offer a modern day perspective along with the historical It worked for me to some degree and I liked the 20th century protagonist Tamsin My heart belonged though to Rose the strong willed brainy determined young woman whose commitment to the scientific truth brought her up against the British Establishment in 1810Rose's mission was to promote her ailing father's life long investigation into the nature and habits of the Australian platypus a creature so unfamiliar to the scientific Establishment in England that the pundits refused to believe it existed They called the specimens and drawings a grand hoax The parts of the book that followed this thread really appealed to meThe mystery surrounding the origins of the sketchbook which contained all those significant scientific observations was intriguing and some of the minor narrative elements held my attention However I found some aspects of the story tipped over into melodrama That style may appeal to some readers but I found it rather cheesy And the putative link between Rose and Tamsin a century apart struck me as a bit contrivedI was not entranced by Tea Cooper's writing style It seemed a bit patchy with some well written almost lyrical passages interspersed with some incredibly clunky paragraphs Lots of poorly constructed phrases such as an elegantly 'clad' foot which surely should have been elegantly 'shod' I don't want to be too picky but the misuses jarredHaving said that I did enjoy the book overall and think it is a pleasant mystery one that does not tax the brain too much A solid 35 stars

I have read a few of MS Cooper’s books and loved them but I have to say that this is just the best so far what an amazing story set across a century here in Australia and England the characters are strong and are alive there is a mystery that crosses the century that was amazing as it was unravelled and the two woman are fabulous they showed such courage I had a very early morning as I finished this oneWhere do I start Maybe with Rose Winton I loved Rose and her strength and courage she worked so hard alongside her father Charles Winton one of the colonies first naturalists studying the native platypus in its environment and this was in Agnes Banks New South Wales 1808 Rose is a young girl than but years working with her father taught her how to draw and paint and learn she lived with her Pa and Mam a convict transported for theft but there were secrets that were kept and when they come out people’s lives are turned upside down but Rose shows such strength when it is neededIt is now 1908 and Tamsin Alleyn is working for at the public library in Sydney and is asks to take a trip to The Hunter Valley and investigate a sketch book that is supposed to belong to Charles Winton Tamsin meets a solicitor Shaw Everdene who is working for the family who supposedly owns the book this starts a journey of investigation that is so intriguing when one discovery leads to another and Tamsin and Shaw get closerThis book has left me speechless I practically gulped this one down in one sitting it is so good two woman a century apart linked like you would not believe I loved the strength that these two showed and with the help of the men who jumped in and added to the journey was amazing of course there is the history of the platypus and the settings MS Cooper you have knocked my socks off with this one I cannot highly recommend it enough I loved this one
