One Impassioned Family . . .
One Enduring Legacy . . .
Almost against her will, Annie Tremayne rose to the top of her family's shipping empire in 1870s Sydney Nothing could stop her -- neither the manipulation of her grandmother, Nan Livingston, nor the amorous attentions of journalist Ryan Sheridan. Though drawn to Ryan, Annie still longed for Dream Time, the outback sheep station of her childhood, and for reconciliation with her runaway twin brother.
Like her grandmother before her, it was up to Annie to follow her own heart and lead her family into a new era. She would risk everything -- even love -- to safeguard the dynasty that spanned a half-century of adventure and power, romance and fortune.
