AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'After working as a nurse with Australian soldiers in World War I, Amy Carmichael settles in the little town of Gundaroo, South Australia. There she is reunited with one of her former patients, returned digger Danny McLean - and meets his brother, Randall...

'The McLeans own Drovers Run, a big station just out of town. But Drovers Run is in trouble - and so is Amy. She likes Danny, but is dismayed to find that it is Randall for whom her feelings are growing most strongly. In a small town rumour is rife, and when shots are fired during a cattle rustling operation, it is the trigger for the inevitable showdown between the brothers...' (Publisher's blurb)
