              In 1864 cousins Brandon and Sean O'Riain fled their tenant farms in County Tipperary as wanted criminals. Now, three years on, they are working as cedar-cutters in New South Wales's lush-green Richmond Valley. But while Brandon embraces the opportunities this new country offers, ...Sean refuses to let go of the past. And one of them is about to make a dangerous choice . . . Nearly a century later, in the spring of 1949, Stella O'Riain is also fleeing her home - a sheep property on the barren edge of the Strzelecki Desert. She leaves behind her husband Joe and a baby daughter. With no money and limited options, Stella accepts her brother-in-law Harry's offer to live at the O'Riain family cane farm in the Richmond Valley. However Harry's refusal to discuss Joe - or the row that tore the brothers apart - leaves Stella with more questions than answers. In particular, why does she feel someone is watching her from a distance? And what is the real reason she is banned from speaking to the owner of the farm next door?

Even when her beloved brother, Cameron James, first born and heir, is killed in a tragic accident, nobody looks to S...arah to inherit.

She is constantly drawn back to Wangallon but when will she finally admit that it's not just Wangallon she longs for but the station's manager, Anthony.

Past and present interweave in a story that traces the Gordon family from the arrival of Scottish immigrant Hamish Gordon in Australia in the 1850's to the life of his great granddaughter, Sarah, in the 1980's. Full of action, romance, tragedy, family secrets and misunderstandings this novel has a bit of something for everyone but particularly the discerning commercial women's fiction reader.

              Stone Country (EPUB ebook)

              By Alexander, Nicole

              From nineteenth-century Adelaide and the red dirt of mid-north South Australia, to the cattle stations and buffalo plains of the far north Ross Grant's journey is one of anger and desire, adventure and determination, to the heart of stone country and beyond. South Australia, 1919.... Ross Grant has always felt like the black sheep of his wealthy Scottish family. An explorer at heart, he dreams of life on Waybell, their remote cattle station in Australia's last remaining wilderness, the Northern Territory. Then his brother Alastair is branded a deserter after going missing during the Great War. To help restore the Grants' damaged reputation, Ross is coerced into marrying Darcey Thomas, a woman he has never met. Disgusted by his manipulative family, he turns his back on his unwanted wife just hours after the ceremony, and heads to Waybell with no plans to return. He carries with him the hope of carving his own empire in the far north. But Ross has not counted on Darcey's determination to be his wife in more than just name. Nor did he anticipate meeting Maria, a young, part-Chinese woman who will capture his heart. And he certainly wasn't prepared for how this beautiful yet savage land will both captivate and destroy his soul . . . From nineteenth-century Adelaide and the red dirt of mid-north South Australia, to the cattle stations and buffalo plains of the far north Ross's journey is one of anger and desire, adventure and determination, to the heart of stone country and beyond.

              From the American Wild West to the wilds of outback Queensland, from the Civil War to the Depression of the 1930s, The Great Plains is an epic story about two conflicting cultures and one divided family. It is Dallas 1886, and the Wade Family is going from strength to strength: f...rom a thriving newspaper and retail business in Texas to a sprawling sheep station half a world away in Queensland. Yet money and power cannot compensate for the tragedy that struck twenty-three years ago, when Joseph Wade was slaughtered and his seven-year-old daughter Philomena abducted by Apache Indians. Only her uncle, Aloysius, remains convinced that one day Philomena will return. So when news reaches him that the legendary Geronimo has been captured, and a beautiful white woman discovered with him, he believes his prayers have been answered. Little does he know that the seeds of disaster have just been sown. Over the coming years three generations of Wade men will succumb to an obsession with three generations of mixed-blood Wade women: the courageous Philomena, her hot-headed granddaughter Serena, and her gutsy great-granddaughter Abelena u a young woman destined for freedom in a distant red land. But at a price ...?

              Inspired by a real newspaper story from 1930, September Winds is an epic tale of duty, ambition, prejudice and love, from the pen of bestselling author Nicole Alexander. A new world is waiting for her ...It's 1929, and the world is changing. Cars are no longer the privilege of th...e rich. Hemlines are rising. Movies are talking. And more and more women are entering the workforce. For Edwina Baker, however, life on her family's farm in Western Queensland offers little opportunity to be anything other than daughter, sister and, perhaps soon, wife. But Edwina wants more. She wants to see the world, meet new people, achieve things. For while she has more business sense than her younger brother, it will be Aiden who one day inherits the farm. Then the circus comes to town. Banned from attending by her father Hamilton, Edwina defiantly rides to the showground dressed as a boy. There she encounters two men, who will both inadvertently alter the course of her life- pastoralist Mason with his modern city friends; and Will, a labourer who also dreams of escape. And when the night ends in near-disaster, this one act of rebellion strikes at the heart of the Baker family. Yet it also offers Edwina the rare chance to prove herself in a man's world. The question is, how far is she prepared to go, and how much is she prepared to risk?
