Dear Banjo is a Contemporary Fiction Romance with a New Adult feel to it.
My Five Star Review:
Dear Banjo is a truly amazing story about two best friends, Willow (Banjo) Paterson and Tom Forrest. Banjo and Tom both grew up on neighboring farms in Kimberley Australia and created a friendship bond that Banjo never wants to lose. These two young people want the same things in life. To go to university, learn all about organic beef operations and then take over the operation on each of their respective farms. But one night, when they were 18 years old, Tom does something he vowed he would never do. He broke the “Pact.” (And that’s all the information you’re getting out of me. You’ll have to read to find out what Pact and how the story unfolds.)
I can’t even find the words to tell you how much I truly enjoyed this story. The writing was beautiful, the characters we all amazing, and the ups and downs in this story will leave you breathless. I became a big fan of Sasha Wasley while reading her Young Adult books but out of all her books, Dear Banjo is now my favorite. This is the kind of book I will not hesitate to pull out and re-read again and again.
More About Dear Banjo:
They were best friends who were never meant to fall in love – but for one of them, it was already way too late.
Willow ‘Banjo’ Paterson and Tom Forrest were raised on neighboring cattle stations in the heart of the Kimberley. As young adults, sharing the same life dreams, something came between them that Willow cannot forget. Now ten years have passed since she’s even spoken to Tom.
When her father falls ill, Willow is called home to take over the running of the family property, Paterson Downs. Her vision for a sustainable, organic cattle station is proving hard to achieve. She needs Tom’s help, but is it too late, and all too complicated, to make amends?
Tom’s heartfelt, decade-old letters remain unopened and unmentioned between them, and Willow must find the courage to finally read them. Their tattered pages reveal a love story like no other – and one you’ll never forget.
Dear Banjo is a wildly romantic and utterly captivating story about first love and second chances from an exciting new Australian author.
