Even in the prospering colony of New South Wales, it would be far-fetched to think a convicted man could consider marrying the daughter of a wealthy property owner.
But Remy has larger problems to contend with than Sara’s bigoted father. Forced to leave the woman he loves behind, Remy faces overwhelming odds and an ordeal that threatens to strip him of everything; his pride, his strength, his health—even his life.
Sara has many struggles of her own and when Remy finally thinks he has a future with Sara within his grasp, he is sent to a place where pain and suffering are everyday occurrences. Will the lovers ever find true happiness?
“I loved this story. It has everything. Happiness, tears, love, hate. I recommend it highly for all lovers of romantic adventure tales.
Barbara M. Hodges eBook Ecstasy ezine 4 Diamonds ****
“The author has delivered an accurate and compelling story of a convict’s life, touching on those of gold miners and the growing town of Sydney. The evocative writing and the increasingly dire straits that Remy and Sara find themselves in, make for an excellent read.”
Leanne Shawler for eBook Reviews Weekly
“Tricia McGill takes us to the Australian colonial period in this rather dark saga of Remy and Sara. I love books where the scenery is vivid, there are characters that “live”, and the characters are truly to cheer and boo for. This book has all of that and more. It scores high on the “lost in the story” list…
Thanks Tricia, now can I have another???” Rose. HeartStrings Romance at Heart
“This story had me riveted from page one. The historical facts ring true and add veracity to Remy’s tale. The characters all come alive and the descriptions of places and events and people pulled me into the story and immersed me in their world. Remy is a stunning hero- handsome, kind, intelligent, and witty. I found myself holding my breath to see if he would find his true love, Sara. Once started, I couldn’t put this book down. It’s by far one of the most enthralling romances I’ve read in years.”
Jennifer Macaire A Romance Review five roses*****
“Amidst the sweet romance and tenderness, Ms. McGill adds the excitement of spousal abuse, bushrangers, forced marriage, kidnapping, and Remy’s imprisonment and torture. She shows that a talented author can take a romance and turn it into so much more. I couldn’t put it down and I bet you won’t be able to either. I’ve become an avid Tricia McGill fan!”
