Summary

Best-selling saga author Anna Jacobs's novel of life in 19th-century Lancashire and Australia. A must-listen for fans of Dilly Court and the Rivenshaw saga.

Love can cross oceans....

Keara Michaels doesn't want to leave her family in Ireland, but fate sends her first to Lancashire, then across the sea to Australia, pregnant and penniless. And Theo Mullane, the man who loves her, is married, with an ailing baby son, so cannot follow her as he longs to.

Mark Gibson leaves Lancashire to avoid marriage. But gold prospecting is a dangerous pursuit, and when his gentle young wife dies in childbirth, his father-in-law kidnaps the baby. So Mark runs away again, this time to Western Australia, where he employs Keara in his country inn.

But danger threatens them all, even in the bush. As Keara searches for her lost sisters, Theo comes looking for the woman he loves, and Mark at last confronts his past.

A penny worth of sunshine

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Australia as a setting was surprisingly nice. It was very cold outside as I read this, but the Australian sunshine shone through.
I am off to get the next in the trio.

A lovely story which was sad at times but I was so glad that the story had a happy ending. I hope there will be another story telling how the lives of all the characters turned out.
