It is the time of Australia’s harsh rogue-filled gold rush of the 1850’s when Miss Penelope Worthington suddenly finds herself orphaned, isolated and alone. With a large sheep station to run single-handedly, she has little option but to enlist the aid of a mysterious, but sinister stranger.
But who is the more treacherous? Gus—the scruffy, trespassing, ex-convict who co-incidentally shows up looking for work just when she desperately needs a farmhand or Rupert—the handsome, wealthy neighbour who would willingly marry her at the drop of a hat and solve her apparent dilemma?
Repeatedly, her faith is tested as she faces the unforgiving elements, deceit, lies and uncertainty. But where and how will it all end? But…is it the end? Will vengeance return or will Penny’s faith prevail?
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
"In Ellenvale Gold, Amanda Deed has brought to vivid life the hardships and romance of the Victorian gold rush era. I loved the clever way she wove together the lives of her characters with our country's fascinating past.This book will give you an appreciation for the spirit of our pioneer ancestors."
Paula Vince, award-winning author of Best Forgotten.
"Amanda's story has the authentic feel of the Australian outback. There is great insight into the gold rush days and the lure of gold, and also about the reality of living in isolated and tough conditions on Australian properties. The characters are rich and believable and the story line has it all; romance, suspense, skullduggery, and a happy ending. What more could you want."
