The Red Dirt Heart series by NR Walker is one of my favourites to date.…
The third part in the series and a worthy following up. Charlie and Travis are still together and life is flowing steady on the farm in outback Australia. But then things go wrong. Ma hasn’t been feeling well lately and keeps getting worse. Charlie still feels he is not good enough for Travis and has to learn to talk about his feelings.
Then a call from America comes calling Travis back home again for an unknown time. It forces the boys apart and allows them time to think things over. Do they really want to be together or not? Is Charlie prepared to come out to other people and freely admit he is gay and in love with Travis?
And to complete it all, Charlie’s long lost mother come back on the scene, wanting to be back in his life again and telling him he has a brother now. It all becomes too much for Charlie and he has to find a way to make everything right again in his head, his mind and his heart.
I have said it before and I will say it again. I LOVE these books. N.R. Walker has a way with words that just gets to me and makes me want to continue reading until the end. Part 4 has been announced for January 2015 and it will be the final part. I cannot wait for it.
However, I do have 1 small thing that starts to bug me. How come Charlie still doesn’t believe he is good enough for Travis? The guy has been with him for a year now. has left his home and country for him, tells him he loves him every minute of every day and still Charlie has doubts. When will that ever end?
But all in all, this part is a worthy addition to the series. I still recommend these books to everyone I know. Read these books people, you will not regret it.
Life for Charlie Sutton has never been better, or busier. With Travis now a permanent fixture of Sutton Station, a permanent fixture at Charlie’s side, Charlie’s convinced he couldn’t do anything on his ever-growing to-do list without him.
He can run a multimillion dollar cattle business, finish his degree, try and further the local beef industry, deal with staff issues, Ma’s failing health, and an attention-demanding wombat. He can even deal with an unexpected visitor and some shattering news.
He can deal with it all, as long as he has Travis.
But what happens when he doesn’t?
Red Dirt Heart 3 is the story of Charlie Sutton finally realising he can be the man Travis Craig deserves, even if he doesn’t have Travis. It’s a story of love, family, holding on, letting go and coming home.
