Under A Golden Sun

Under A Golden Sun

Wanted: companion to escort a young, orphaned child home to Australia.
All expenses as well as passage covered.
Interested parties to apply without delay to 32 Williams Street, Belgravia.

Rose Hamilton is in desperate need of a fresh start. There are so many reasons she should ignore the advertisement: the war, those treacherous seas, her family, her fiancé… but she cannot help herself. Within weeks, she is boarding an enormous convoy, already too attached to five-year-old Walter Lucknow.

But rural Queensland, and the cattle station home of Walter’s parents, is not as either of them were told to expect. Rose cannot leave this little boy she’s grown to love until he is happy, and she knows the key to this is Walter’s wounded fighter pilot uncle Max. But how will she ever part with Walter? And what if he isn’t the only reason she wants to stay?

Perfect for fans of Kirsty Manning, Dinah Jefferies, Victoria Hislop and Natasha Lester.
