"A marriage not for love ...
Angela Burns on her mother's death travelled with her younger sister Nellie to Australia to live with their adopted Aunt Kara, only to find her aunt had died while they were on the high seas. Angela is frightened, as they have no money and nowhere to go, but Gilbert Lawrence, Aunt Kara's great-nephew and owner of her rich cattle station, comes to the rescue and offers Angela marriage. For Nellie's sake she accepts. A marriage not for love between two proud people who misunderstand each other's motives is the theme of this stirring romance by our favourite Lucy Walker."
