epeabody reviewed Outback Station (Outback Saga, Bk 2) on
The convict: David Kerrick was a man with nothing left to lose. Betrayed by the woman he adored, deported to Australia for murdering her lover, he had lost the will to live until the lure of the outback claimed his soul. Captivated by the sweeping wild beauty of the land, its freedom and mystery, he set out to make a piece of it his own. Battling drought and dingoes, bushfires and bushrangers, he lived for the moment until the past came back to haunt him.
The colonist: Wealthy and beautiful, Alexandra Hammond had every reason to disdain the penniless convict who had killed her cousin. But Alexandra was a woman with the strength to judge the truth for herself, and the determination to forge her own destiny.
Together, they would take on the vast outback, burying the bitterness of the past and planting the seeds of a shining future.
