A sweeping tale of forbidden love and new beginnings, perfect for fans of Santa Montefiore and The Tea Planter's Wife.
Australia, 1800. Moira, a young Irish girl, arrives in New South Wales with her much older husband, a doctor who has been sent to work at the penal colony. Locked in a marriage of convenience, the blue skies and sunshine do nothing for Moira; she is miserable, far from home and her beloved horses. But things change after she meets Duncan, one of the convicts, who she saves during a camp raid. As the two get to know each other they grow closer and Moira realises she may have a chance at happiness. But can she escape her controlling husband? And Duncan, imprisonment? Can the future they dream of ever be possible?
