                      This book is amazing, I couldn’t put it down, I must admit the language in the early chapters had me a little uncomfortable until I thought about it and realized it is the way those born from the sixties up speak now.By then I was so engrossed in Bella’s Run that nothing would have stopped me from reading until the end. I laughed with the girls, remembered many similarities with the love my husband & I shared from our first meeting, places, desperate feelings, sex Love, we married three months after meeting. But the biggest shock was how many tears poured down my face as I shared Bella’s feelings further into this wonderful book that Margareta Osborn, allowed me to live, feeling the pain & pure magical pleasures of this rural Australian country story of two best friends for Life.
