Synopsis

Adam, orphaned at nine, cherised a dream – that one day he would have land of his own. The opal fields of Coober Pedy offered his first glimpse of riches – and Nellie, a dusky beauty, provided his first taste of love...From the western plains of New South Wales to the balmy waters of Sydney Harbour, from the grinding heat of a West Australian cattle station to the eerie desert shores of Lake Eyre, Adam was driven by his ambition.At his side stood Heather, a woman whose blonde beauty masked a calculating heart of ice. And when tragedy struck, it seemed that Adam would never realise his dream...#66 in Australia's Top 100 Favourite Homegrown Reads
