Description - Fortune's Son by Jennifer Scoullar

Can one man's revenge become his redemption?Young Luke Tyler has everything going for him- brains, looks and a larrikin charm that turns heads. The future appears bright, until he defends his sister from the powerful Sir Henry Abbot. His reward is fifteen years hard labour on a prison farm in Tasmania's remote highlands.Luke escapes, finding sanctuary with a local philanthropist, Daniel Campbell, and starting a forbidden relationship with Daniel's daughter, Belle. But when Luke is betrayed, he must flee or be hanged. With all seeming lost, Luke sails to South Africa to start afresh. Yet he remains haunted by the past, and by Belle, the woman he can't forget. When he returns to seek revenge and reclaim his life, his actions will have shattering consequences - for the innocent as well as the guilty.Set against a backdrop of wild Tasmania, Australian gold and African diamonds, Fortune's Son is an epic story of betrayal, love and one man's struggle to triumph over adversity and find his way home.PRAISE FOR JENNIFER SCOULLAR'Scoullar, it turns out, is a writer of documentary calibrealovely, lyrical prose.'

Author Biography - Jennifer Scoullar

Jennifer has always harboured a deep appreciation and respect for the natural world. Her house, which was left to her by her father, is on a hilltop overlooking valleys of messmate and mountain ash. She lives there with her family. A pair of old eagles live there too. Black-tailed wallabies graze by the creek. Eastern spinebills hover among the callistemon. Horses have always been her passion. She grew up on the books of Elyne Mitchell, and all her life she's ridden and bred horses, in particular Australian stock horses.
