A riveting tale of resilience, secrets, and the unbreakable bonds of family, when betrayal and survival hang in the balance.

Home again at
Ceann Mara Station on the banks of the Darling River, where she spent a happy childhood with her four sisters, Catriona O'Byrne feels safe. Scarred by a harrowing attack at university, she falls into the familiar, nursing both her body and her trust in all that she once believed in.
Logan Wainwright—a detective on leave and the new property owner across the river has his own demons. Together with Catriona, he begins to heal as he assists her with her family history research on the O'Byrne brothers—Thomas and Samuel.
As her attraction to Logan grows, Catriona stumbles upon a family secret.
In the nineteenth century, two siblings faced a life-altering choice: to flee from their ancestral farm in County Kerry or face the risk of going to prison.
A gripping family saga unfolds as Catriona unearths the layers of family history. Samuel’s pursuit of success along the Darling River stands in stark contrast to Thomas’s contentment with what he holds dear.

When her university friends make a surprise visit to
Ceann Mara, Catriona is confronted by a betrayal that threatens not only her newfound peace but her very survival.
In her confusion, where past and present collide, can Catriona navigate their sad family history and learn who she can trust before it’s too late?
