About the Book
Elizabeth Waverly never dreamed that taking a convict transport back to her home in Australia would change her life. But from the moment she lays eyes on John Martin, she cannot resist her growing attraction to him. She knows the man faces a life sentence for murder, but her heart refuses to believe he is guilty of the charges against him. How could someone who so valiantly protects others and accepts another prisoner's punishment be a brutal felon? Yet once the transport ship lands in Australia, their paths are bound to head in very different directions. Is their love destined to become a bittersweet memory of what might have been, or will faith show them another way?

My Thoughts:
This is a good book. I first read it years ago, so it was nice to re-read it for this tour.
Australian history of this time is very interesting, and this is one of the best books I've read about it.
Make sure you get your hands on the other 3 books in the series, as there are a few things left hanging at the end of this book!

Thank you so much for your kind comments, Beth. I would love the readers of your blog to know a new video trailer about The Great Southland series is now up on YouTube - titled The Southland Series. It was great fun writing these books, especially as I was able to use actual letters and information from my ancestors as in the Pedler and Telfer Family history books.
