Description - Beyond the Horizon by Peter Watt
"the home grown version of Wilbur Smith" The Sunday Age
Beyond the Horizon continues the much-loved saga of the Duffys and Macintoshes, told with Peter Watt's trademark mastery of grand scope, family drama and enthralling adventure.
It is 1918, a year when the War will end, but an even greater killer will arise.
On the bloody fields of the Western Front and the battle-scarred desert plains of the Middle East, Tom and Matthew Duffy are facing the enemy. Even as they are trapped on the front lines, they must also find the courage to fight for the women they love when all hope is lost.
Back in Australia, George Macintosh is outraged by the stipulations of his father's will that provide for his despised nephew, and is determined to eliminate any threats to his power. And in a sacred cave in the far Outback, old Wallarie foresees a tide of unspeakable death sweeping through his homeland.
As all nations come to terms with the devastating consequences of the Great War, a new world will be born. But not everyone will live to see it.
