Rhonda Forrest - Kick The Dust @rhondaforrestauthor
You know when you come to the end of a story and there’s a kind of sadness after reading the last page and you close the book and sit back and think “wow, that was amazing”. Kick The Dust is that book.
Rhonda Forrest has given the readers a book of beauty, a realistic slow burn romance and one authentic story of love and courage.
If I close my eyes I could vision the scenes playing out in front of me, it felt that real and beautiful.
I could visualise the artist and his brush, the finished painting, the atmosphere, the description of the outback, the list goes on.
Rhonda’s writing is so poetic and emotional that I totally believed everything that was written, it’s like a true love story was being told.
It’s unique, passionate and captivating.
There’s a number of underlying themes throughout the story, racism, immigration, PTSD, war, refugees, all told with compassion and realism.
Thank you to the wonders of social media for introducing me to yet another of Australia’s very talented storytellers and through this medium I wish to spread the world and tell all of you, read this book you won’t be disappointed.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5 stars
Kick the Dust is poignant and emotive, covering topics of refugees, boat people, the struggle of integration into the Australian way of life, and the want and need to be accepted.

Silkworm Secrets is a tale that will continue to resonate long after you have said goodbye to this book. The combination of a compelling storyline, characters you grow to care for and the true Australian setting makes this an easy five star read.
Mrs B's Book Reviews
The Shack by the Bay is the quintessential Aussie novel with your very well crafted (and oh so real) characters, your unique Queensland landscapes and typical Aussie lingo/slang. Authentic. That is the best way to describe this beautiful, little, Aussie treasure. The story line moves at a snail's pace, but it doesn't feel like a slow read. It feels refreshing and made me feel that I too have had a peaceful reprieve for the craziness of life in my own (mental) shack by the bay.
The Mad Hatter
Two Heartbeats by Aussie author Rhonda Forrest (aka Lea Davey) is a story of second chances; of hope; sadness; love and trust. Set in the vast and drought-ridden Australian outback with nothing but dust, flies and heat for company, Two Heartbeats is another emotional novel from an author I thoroughly enjoy. Highly recommended.
From an early age I developed a love for books and although there were many busy years, working and bringing up a family, I always continued to read.
After traversing several different careers, I studied as a mature age student and today continue to mix a teaching career with writing and travelling.
A life-long love of reading has now also grown into a passion for writing and for creating novels that encompass the beautiful landscapes of Australia, the amazing history of our land and people and the eclectic characters who all call Australia home.
My greatest delight is to know that readers are discovering my books and enjoying them. It is so exciting that people are connecting with the characters and stories. It keeps me writing.
I would love you to share my fictional world and enter a place that is born between the pages of my books, ending long after the last word has finished.
