Publisher Description

Three Blake sisters remain in the Swan River Colony in 1866 and two are quite happy to forge new lives for themselves there.

The third, Xanthe, yearns to see the world. But even if she could afford to travel, could she persuade her beloved twin to let her go Maia has fallen in love with their employer, and would surely be happiest staying behind with him.

Xanthe's opportunity comes in the form of a handsome Irishman bringing some of the sisters' inheritance from England. But for Maia, the same man brings trouble in his wake - someone who has the power to make her life a misery.

Both sisters' reserves of courage and endurance will be tested before they can finally find a home to call their own.
