About the Book

Adventure, romance and history combine in this thrilling 19th Century journey through the Victorian bush in the company of a determined heroine.

Maggie O'Rourke has always had a hard head. No man was going to tie her down to a life of babies and domestic slavery, even if that man was as good (and as annoyingly attractive) as Sam Taylor. Maggie is happily earning her own way as a maid in a house on the Murray River when disaster strikes.

Forced to defend herself and a friend from assault by an evil man, she flees downriver on a paddle steamer. With death at her heels, Maggie begins to realise that a man like Sam might be just who she wants in her hour of need. As for Sam, well, Maggie has always been what he wants.

The further Maggie runs, the more she discovers there are some things she cannot escape...

Biography

Darry Fraser's first novel, Daughter of the Murray (2016) is set on her beloved River Murray where she spent part of her childhood. Where The Murray River Runs (2017) is her second novel set in the same era, 1890s. Novels three and four are being prepared for release 2018 and 2019. The Australian landscape is home and hearth - the rural, the coastal, the arid lands and the desert. The history, the hidden stories, the catalysts create the powerful connection between her characters and are the drivers in her stories. Apprenticed on a number of contemporary novels and novellas, she returned to writing Australian historical fiction, which is her favourite genre. She lives and works on the beautiful Kangaroo Island off the coast of South Australia. To find out more, visit Darry on her website.   You can also follow Darry on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
