Ronan's Echo by Joanne Van Os( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Did we have any relatives die in the First World War?" Forensic Anthropologist Kat Kelso's innocent question begins the unravelling of a hundred years of family history, lies and secrets. In 1916 twin brothers Denny and Connor Ronan are eager to get to the war before it's all over; Bridie O'Malley, their childhood friend and the woman they both love, watches them leave, understanding too late that war is about more than heroes and handsome boys in uniform. Nearly a century on from the disastrous battle of Fromelles, Kat Kelso, Bridie's great granddaughter, is on site in France identifying the recovered bodies of lost Australian soldiers. The discovery of her own relative amongst the dead men brings Kat, her mother Fiona and great-aunt Hattie, far more questions than answers. The wounds of love and war have devastating consequences that ripple across time

Outback heart by Joanne Van Os( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joanne Van Os was 19 when she first met the handsome and charismatic Rod Ansell, later known as 'the original Crocodile Dundee'. At 24, Rod was a legend in Australia and overseas. To Joanne, he was a god, a genuine outback hero. Soon they were married with two small sons, and Joanne was living the tough life of an outback 'bullcatcher' and cattle musterer. Ultimately, however, their marriage broke down, and it was then that Rod's life started to go off the rails. His life was tragically cut short in a shoot-out in which two young policemen were also killed. Containing wonderful colour photographs, Outback Heart is a deeply moving and powerful story that will keep you reading till the last page. Joanne captures the outback life but she also tells a deeply personal story of a love affair and a marriage, and the pain when it all falls apart."--Publisher

Outback heart by Joanne Van Os( )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joanne van Os was just twenty-two when she met Rod Ansell. At twenty-three Rod was already a legend in Australia and around the world, having survived alone for two months without supplies in one of the harshest and most remote parts of northern Australia. To Joanne, Rod was a genuine hero who told the funniest yarns and had a philosophy on everything. She married him, and they had two beautiful sons who idolised their father. Together they lived the tough life of outback bull catchers and cattle musterers. But as time went on Joanne came to realise that Rod was both a complicated and deeply troubled man. For the sake of her sons she never gave up on Rod, even after their divorce, but just how far he'd gone only became apparent when his life finally ended in tragedy: out of his mind on drugs, Rod became involved in a shoot-out in which a young police officer was killed. Outback Heart captures the Territory life on paper: the dust, the heat, the struggle and the larger-than-life characters. But it's also a deeply moving and powerful story of a love affair and a marriage, and the pain when it all falls apart
