Band of Gold

(2010)
(The third book in the Kitty / Smuggler's Wife series)
A novel by

 
 
Kitty Farrell, popular heroine of two earlier books, goes to the Ballarat goldfields.

On the goldfields of Ballarat, vows are broken - can a wounded heart ever forgive?

When the Yarrowee River bursts its banks, Rian Farrell, a dashing Irish sea captain and part-time gunrunner, disappears in the torrential flood. Believing herself a widow, the headstrong and passionate Kitty Farrell's heart is left in tatters after the sudden death of her beloved husband. In her grief, she finally succumbs to the attractions of his longtime shipmate, Daniel, who has loved her from afar for many years. The consequences are disastrous and will challenge Kitty Farrell both physically and mentally.

The resulting novel is a heady mix of powerful relationships and memorable, passionate characters whose compelling story plays out against a skillfully depicted and utterly realistic backdrop of Old Ballarat.

An accomplished novelist and professional historian, experienced author Deborah Challinor brings her extensive skills as a best-selling author of historical romance to bear in creating a story that will resonate in your heart for a very long time.

"Challinor is a good storyteller; her characters have depth and her historical backdrops are well researched, seamlessly joining fact and fiction and creating a convincing, atmospheric yarn. Because of the strong action theme, Band of Gold is a real page-turner." (Bookseller + Publisher)
