Product Description

She can run but she can’t hide…

As her father’s only heir, Catherine Cottingham expects to inherit their sprawling property in the Hunter Valley. What she doesn’t understand is why her father is trying to push her into a marriage to the pompous and repulsive Sydney businessman Henry W. Bartholomew.

When the will is read it becomes clear money, or the lack of it, lay behind her father’s plans. Catherine is mortified — as a married woman all her possessions will pass to her husband, the overbearing Bartholomew. Her only alternative is to wait until her twenty-first birthday and inherit the property in her own right, but can she elude such a determined man until then?

A chance encounter with a travelling circus and its fiery lead performer, Sergey Petrov, offers the perfect solution and Catherine escapes to the goldfields. But there is more to the circus than spangles and sawdust and Catherine finds herself drawn into a far-reaching web of fraud and forgery…

A stunning new novel from the bestselling author of The Horse Thief and The Cedar Cutter



Praise for THE CURRENCY LASS:

'I loved the era this plot was set in and I found myself so in character that I was riding with Sergey hoping he would be able to save the day. The question is, did he? You’ll love the answer and inhale the sawdust of the circus and the beauty of the bush by reading this enchanting story.' — Jeannette McAnderson (Netgalley)



'Another great Aussie drama set in the outback at the time of the gold rushes, ‘The Currency Lass’, is full to the brim with great locations, well rounded characters and an engaging plot. I just love these strong female leads and Catherine Cottingham surely fulfills that role in the first few pages as she follows her intuition to do what is right. I do enjoy reading tales of this era and highly recommend taking this journey back to a time in Australia where people struggled to start afresh in making a new life for themselves. Tea Cooper has presented a memorable tale of a bygone era.' — Helen Hancock, Netgalley

Catherine Cottingham, heiress to her beloved Cottington Hill estate, believes she will never have to leave her home. After all, her father has left everything to her in his will. But when he dies, she discovers it all becomes her husband’s when she marries. And the husband her father has chosen for her is the fat, bombastic Henry Bartholomew. A night at Rudi’s Equestrian Circus watching the dark, handsome Sergei Petrov, performing exhilarating feats of horsemanship makes her contemplate the impossible. What if she joined the circus, hiding until her twenty-first birthday in six months’ time, when she could inherit in her own right and refuse marriage to Bartholomew?

We are swept off to the circus of our childhoods; to the glitter, spangles and fun; the thrill and danger of circus feats and the magnificent animals who perform them. Into this the author has interweaved intrigue, love and heady adventure. Another wonderful Australian Historical from Tea Cooper set in and around her home of Wollombi. The characters are captivating and the geography and social rules authentically portrayed. Tea Cooper has set the story in the days of the gold rushes and portrays vividly the gold mania which created either ghost towns or thriving gold towns within days of a gold find. I thoroughly recommend this book.

I read this book during a period of convalescence. The drama and bringing together of characters is well handled but the ending is no surprise. I would recommend it to someone who is looking for something light that they can leave and come back to. Not exactly gripping, but enjoyable.
