New South Wales, 1839 Jack Bradbury has grown up around the local Mission station and formed a deep and growing relationship with his childhood friend, Lowanna. 
But his parents are determined that Jack will take his rightful place in the middle-class commercial society into which he was born and seek a higher match for him. Jack decides to follow a career in the legal profession and finds a job with a prominent barrister in Sydney. Almost before he realises what is happening Jack is engaged to be married to his employer’s daughter, and assured of a prosperous future in partnership with his father-in-law. Then trouble breaks out in the local Aboriginal community, and Lowanna reappears in his life, seeking his assistance.
This is the third book in the series & we move twenty years forward. Another well written page turner which I once again read in a sitting. The characters are well portrayed. I loved Jack & was invested in his story. I loved how he was drawn in two directions & the pages flew by as I wanted to find out which way he would jump.
My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read
