From the black soil plains of Australia to the rolling hills of England comes an uplifting tale of passion, courage and determination
Alice Ferguson is eight years old when a savage bushfire tears her family apart and she is sent to live with her aunt's family in the tiny town of Billabrin. Lost and lonely, Alice finds comfort in the beauty of the outback and as her confidence grows she dreams of creating her own home and breeding the best wool in the country.
Alice's strength and spirit take her from the farms of the outback to the high society of Cambridge, far from her roots and the land she loves. As tragedy strikes again, Alice must summon every ounce of her will to keep her dream alive - but nothing can prepare Alice for the treachery of her jealous cousin or the betrayal of the only man she ever loved.
