Publisher's Summary

South Australia, 1919. 

Ross Grant has always felt like the black sheep of his wealthy Scottish family. An explorer at heart, he dreams of life on Waybell, their remote cattle station in Australia’s last remaining wilderness, the Northern Territory. 

Then his brother Alastair is branded a deserter after going missing during the Great War, and Ross is coerced into marrying Darcey Thomas, a woman he has never met, to save the family name. Disgusted with his manipulative family, he turns his back on his unwanted wife just hours after the ceremony and heads to Waybell with no plans to return.  

But Ross has not counted on Darcey’s determination to be his wife in more than just name. Nor did he anticipate meeting Maria, a young, part-Chinese woman who will capture his heart. And he certainly wasn’t prepared for how this beautiful yet savage land will both captivate and destroy his soul....

Not for me

Unfortunately I did not really enjoy this book. Thought it could have ended many times but just kept dragging on.

A modern Australian epic.

From start to finish I had difficulty putting the book down. This fascinating story about the tortured life of Ross Grant. From his beginnings as a small boy in Adelaide prior to WW1, the author weaves a magnificent story of family fights and failings, of love and loss.

I say this with the greatest respect, Nicole Alexander brought characters to life in a way that is so similar to Bryce Courtenay that I was absolutely astounded. Very we written and researched. I

I sincerely hope the ‘saga’ continues in Nicole’s next book.
