Set in the 1890s, this is the author's debut novel, set on the Murray River in Victoria, Australia.
There is a marvelous cast of characters:
A sassy, horse-loving, trouser-wearing young woman called Georgina (Georgie) staying at a dilapidated, but beloved estate, called Jacaranda.
Irish businessman, Conor, who runs ferries on the Murray. He has an interesting war wound that he is keeping secret. He wants to possess both Georgie and Jacaranda.
The handsome and successful prodigal son, Dane, who at first is astonished and irritated by Georgina, but quickly comes to be enamoured of her.
The step-uncle who has been lying to everyone about his debts and is about to lose Jacaranda.
These and more create a great story and an interesting read.
