Publisher's Summary

Adventure, romance, and history combine in this thrilling 19th-century journey through the South Australian bush and along the mighty Murray River in the company of a determined heroine.

1895, Renmark, South Australia.

Maggie O'Rourke has always had a hard head. No man was going to tie her down to a life of babies and domestic slavery, even if that man was as good (and as annoyingly attractive) as Sam Taylor. Maggie is happily earning her own way as a maid in a house on the Murray River when disaster strikes. 

Forced to defend herself and a friend from assault by an evil man, she flees downriver on a paddle steamer. With death at her heels, Maggie begins to realize that a man like Sam might be just who she wants in her hour of need. As for Sam, well, Maggie has always been what he wants. 

The further Maggie runs, the more she discovers there are some things she cannot escape....

a fantastic trip into our history

I loved this story. it is the 4th one of Darry Fraser's I have listened to. History woven through with Women's history is one of my passions and Darry has nailed it once again!
