AbstractHistoryArchive Description

It is the 1880s, and the paddle steamers are all that keeps the tiny communities of the Murray River together. Charlie Armstrong is master of the paddle steamer Brenda. George Grenville is the powerful owner of the wine estate Eagle on the Hill. A broken promise and a stolen horse are the beginnings of a lifelong feud, and when hostility spills over into violence, there are consequences for all who live along the Murray. Then Charlie's daughter Alex saves George's grandson Martin from drowning and the two become close friends. But can their relationship survive the enmity between their families? Eagle on the Hill is an epic story of passion, warmth and courage, as enduring as the great Murray itself. (Publisher's blurb)
