Disappointing as a romance, but interesting about trees!

Seduced by the rave reviews and awards that this book has gathered, it was with the anticipation of a great read that I began the story. I am sorry to report that it is a difficult read and even though I perservered until the end I am still unsure how our heroine fares. The interspersing of information about Australia's great trees is interesting enough, but not enough for me to rate this book more highly. I was very disappointed.
