A broken promise and a stolen horse are the beginnings of a lifelong feud, and when hostility spills over into violence, there are consequences for all who live along the river.
Then Charlie's daughter Alex saves George's grandson Martin from drowning and the two become close friends. But can their relationship survive the enmity between their families?
Eagle on the Hill is an epic story of passion, warmth and courage, as enduring as the great Murray River itself.
This is the story of four remarkable women.
Dorrie, who, in the dying years of the nineteenth century, dares to defy the conventions of her time by running away with an artist.
The ambitious Roberta, who rides roughshod over all opposition in her single-minded desire to reach her goals.
The gentle Louise, who defies her own nature to find the strength to pursue her personal happiness.
And finally, Ruth, who survived the terrors of the Second World War only to be trapped in a loveless marriage. Through ability, dedication and raw guts she finds fame and fulfilment in her chosen career.
Now the possibility opens up of a glittering triumph greater than anything she has so far achieved...
An elegant and beautifully told story of the loss of innocence amid turmoil and change — and a woman's determination to succeed.
West is a man with a tarnished past. No apologies, no excuses. However, from the moment he meets Phoebe, West is consumed by irresistible desire...not to mention the bitter awareness that a woman like her is far out of his reach. What West doesn’t bargain on is that Phoebe is no straitlaced aristocratic lady. She’s the daughter of a strong-willed wallflower who long ago eloped with Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent—the most devilishly wicked rake in England.
Before long, Phoebe sets out to seduce the man who has awakened her fiery nature and shown her unimaginable pleasure. Will their overwhelming passion be enough to overcome the obstacles of the past?
Only the devil’s daughter knows…
