AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When Major Patrick Duffy's beautiful wife Catherine leaves him for another, he is propelled out of the Sydney Macintosh home and into yet another bloody war. However the battlefields of Africa, fighting the Boers, bring him in contact with one he thought long dead and lost to him.

'Back in Australia, the mysterious Michael O'Flynn mentors Patrick's youngest son, Alex, and takes him on a journey to the Queensland property, Glen View. But will the terrible curse that has inextricably linked the Duffys and Macintoshes for generations ensure that no true happiness can ever come to them?

'Through the dawn of a new century in a now federated nation, To Chase the Storm charts an explosive tale of love and loss, from South Africa to Palestine, from Townsville to the green hills of Ireland.'

Notes

  • Dedication: For my much loved aunt Joan Letitia Payne, nee Duffy, of Tweed Heads, one of Duckie's Daughters
  • Epigraph: And he sees through the rents of the scattering fogs,
    The corroboree warlike and grim,
    And the lubra who sat by the fire on the logs,
    To watch, like a mourner, for him.
    The Last of His Tribe : Henry Kendall
