The Boundary Fence is the first book I’ve read by Alissa Callen. It was an incredibly charming story and I feel can read as a standalone, despite being book 7 in the Woodlea series, with little to no confusion for the reader. The story is described as being ‘warm-hearted and touching’ and by the end, the books gives you all the warm feelings of comfort, family and being home. I’ll admit it did take me a little while to work out who each of the characters were since I haven’t read the previous books and there seemed to be so many but once I became familiar with recognising the characters, I found I couldn’t help but like each of them with all of their quirks. I also don’t often read many stories based in Australia, especially the outback, so it was a lovely change of pace getting a more in-depth look at the small town country atmosphere in Australia.
