Australia, 1814

As a young child bound for a strange country, Sarah Whitaker dreamed of life with her father on his sprawling Australian ranch. But her hopes were shattered when she learned of his death and of her new role as heiress of the largest sheep farm in New Wales. Orphaned in a land greatly populated by petty criminals exiled from England, the future seemed grim. But now, ten years later, Sarah has defied the odds and become a successful businesswoman much to the chagrin of her male counterparts. Hardened by the dishonesty of both her fellow ranchers and the felons in her employ, Sarah has learned one important truth: no one is to be trusted.

Daniel Burton is a lucky man. Sentenced to death for his role in a horse-race scandal, Daniel was granted reprieve thanks to the influence of his wealthy relatives. Now, rather than death, Daniel faces exile in Australia an opportunity to put past mistakes behind him. But when he purchases land with the intention of farming it, he unwittingly arouses the wrath of his new neighbor, Sarah. What begins as a battle of wits, however, soon becomes a warm friendship and perhaps something more. But when Daniel's secret past is revealed, will Sarah be able forgive yet another deception?

Reviewed by Kelly.

I have to admit this was a slow start for me. I wasn't interested in the way Sarah was in the beginning. I almost stopped reading. But, I am very glad I finished it! I found myself sobbing through much of the last half of the book. Sarah and Daniel both grew and changed and I now see why the beginning was the way it was.

I enjoyed reading how people learn to forgive and change and grow and love others and serve others and help others and the diversity in this book. Some people are snobby and don't forgive though! And many people are hypocrites!

I don't really want to go into the book on the characters. As all the characters have meaning in the book and it is the change in them that makes this book incredibly good!

If you like watching people grow and forgive and love and change and see others in a different light, if you like reading about forgiveness, if you like the sea, horses, land, sheep, working hard then this might be for you. I will be reading this book again and again!
