Publisher's Summary

A woman alone and a charismatic private detective are caught up in a dangerous quest to discover her true identity in this thrilling historical adventure romance set in 19th-century Victoria, from a best-selling Australian author.

It's 1898, Geelong, Victoria. Stella Truehart is all alone in the world. Her good-for-nothing husband has died violently at the hands of an unknown assailant. Her mother is dead, her father deserted them before she was born, and now her kindly Truehart grandparents are also in their graves. 

Private Detective Bendigo Barrett has been tasked with finding Stella. He believes his client's intentions are good, but it is evident that someone with darker motives is also seeking her. For her own part, Stella is fiercely independent, but as danger mounts, she agrees to work with Bendigo, and before long they travel together to Sydney to meet his mysterious client where they discover more questions than answers.

What role do a stolen precious jewel and a long-ago US Civil War ship play in Stella's story? Will sudden bloodshed prevent the resolution of the mystery and stand in the way of her feelings for Bendigo? It is time, at last, for the truth to be revealed....

Great historic storyline

Loved the concept of this book, but just just a little too much romance and not enough historic background

An easy listen

I enjoyed this book. It was an interesting story with historical details. An insight into the time it was set. The narrator did an excellent job.
