International bestseller Patricia Shaw's captivating epic novel is reissued with a stunning new package. In a wild and untamed country, a woman searches for a place to call her own! Tragically orphaned at sea, cast adrift in an alien land, Sibell Delahunty applies for the post of secretary-companion to Charlotte Hamilton and undertakes the arduous journey to Black Wattle Station in the Northern Territory. The rigours of an isolated cattle station come as a shock to the gently brought-up English girl, who is viewed with suspicion by Charlotte's sons. Only Charlotte's own kindness makes life tolerable, helped, in time, by increasing interest from the unmarried son, Zack. When disaster deprives the station of its mistress, Sibell is forced to take charge and eventually earns the grudging respect of the family. She also discovers within herself an unsuspected strength and resilience. But the unforgiving land is not finished with Sibell yet. Her courage and endurance will be tested to the utmost before she can ever call her adopted country home!
