This is from a series done several years ago with book I starting out with British convicts being sent to Austrailia. All of the books were enjoyable if you like the mix of fiction and history.
They came seeking wealth and vengeance. Their dreams might forge a nation or destroy it.
In the 1850's Australia was a land of fertile promise and bitter truths, a wilderness that could only be tamed by proud men and passionate women like the Broomes and Tempests. It was also a land with a secret-a secret that would be revealed with the discovery of gold in the rugged hills and desolate outback.
With that discovery Australia became a mecca for men like Luke Murphy-questing, adventurous, torn between the lure of wealth and the dictates of his heart. And for men like Jasper Morgan-unscrupulous bigands for whom gold was a hunger so consuming, it justified every excess, every savagery, every sin.
The Magnificent Saga from the Producer of the Kent Family Chronicles and Wagons West.
