|About the Book|
The Australian bush in 1875 is a challenge for strong men, and for a woman, it is daunting. Rose Teesdale travels from England to join her husband Luke with high hopes for a new life on their Australian farm. She is not prepared for the immense, silent forest and the dangers that lurk under the trees, or for Lukes indifference. Luke is often away and Rose is left to face sinister Lord Barrington and the mysterious dark people of Haunted Creek, and to fight a secret love for Erik, who saves her life. When Luke is killed Rose decides to stay on, but how can a woman survive with a small child in that wild country?
