Changing Land by Nicole Alexander

Book Description

It's the early 19th century and Hamish Gordon has a massive rural holding built on stock theft and is determined to ensure that his son and heir, Angus, will inherit an enlarged property. Embarking on a final stage of land acquisition, a ruthless plan to buy out his neighbours, Hamish's actions nearly destroy Wangallon and have serious repercussions for generations to come. Luke, Hamish's eldest surviving son from his first marriage, is a wild man, at odds with civilised society. Deeply affected by the untimely deaths of his siblings and mother some thirty years earlier he feels deserted. His unrequited love for his young stepmother leads him to choose a life as Wangallon's Boss drover, an existence which keeps him away from the property most of the year. When Luke learns that his father has engineered events to keep him on the property he must choose between a chance at a new life and the protection of the only home he has ever known. In 1989, two years after the death of family patriarch Angus Gordon, Sarah Gordon now runs Wangallon with the assistance of her fiance, Anthony. Their relationship begins to deteriorate when a power struggle develops between them. Sarah's problems escalate with the arrival of her Scottish half-brother, Jim Macken, who is intent on receiving the inheritance bequeathed to him by Angus Gordon. Unable to buy Jim out and with the possibility of losing one-third of Wangallon, Sarah finds herself fighting the law, her half-brother and Anthony. She has the same inescapable Gordon qualities that will ensure both and her Wangallon's survival but will it be at the expense of her happiness?
