The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots by Loretta Hill

The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots is perfect! Loretta Hill has written a beguiling romance that rings true with its West Australian setting — and characters! — but is also a coming of age story. Lena is on a quest to prove herself, not least, to herself.

There’s a lovely clarity to the Loretta’s style that captures the rhythms and expressions of Australian speech without exaggerating them into mockery. Humour and courage nicely balance the emotion in the story, and all tangled plot strands are competently dealt with in the satisfying conclusion.

I know this is a short review, but honestly, “The Girl in Steel-Capped Boots” was a joy to read–and what else is there to say?

    1. My 1 year old boy would love the one with grey! I like to see how cozy my boy can be wrapped with this baetuiful blanket. My 4 years old boy also would love to play with the blanket to create his imaginary world. We will move to a new house 2 weeks later so it would be a memorial gift to them. Thank you for such a lovely giveaway!
