A sweeping rural saga through four generations of the Gordon family, from bestselling author Nicole Alexander, whose novels go right to the 'heart of Australian storytelling'. Sarah Gordon knows what she wants- the family homestead, Wangallon. When it comes to working the homestead she's a natural but, as a woman, it's not her birthright. Even when her beloved older brother is killed in a tragic accident, nobody looks to Sarah to inherit. Instead her grandfather passes management to Anthony Carrington, who was once Wangallon's jackeroo. Feeling betrayed, Sarah escapes to Sydney to try to put Wangallon behind her. But her heart is pulled in two directions- Sydney with its cafes and social life, her blossoming career as a photographer, and her accountant boyfriend, Jeremy. Or the property that has been in her family for over 120 years, with its floods, its droughts, the ghosts of generations past, and 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 1850s to the life of his great-granddaughter, Sarah.
