AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Jacqueline Gordon-Smith’s family are fleeing an angry mob in Atlanta when the family car crashes, killing her mother and brother. Eighteen years later, after her wealthy husband has a ship board affair on the way to Australia, she finds herself alone and virtually penniless. She befriends two women set to marry lonely farmers and travels with them to the Flinders Ranges where she becomes a housekeeper for widower Ben Dulton. Determined to be rid of her, Ben’s four sons and an eccentric, aboriginal woman [sic] play numerous dirty tricks on her. But Jackie digs in, equally resolute to survive the endless heat, dust and flies, and prove she has worth. Jackie’s only consolation is the gorgeous Nick Dulton, Ben’s brother, who rescues her when she’s kidnapped by the local aboriginal clan. She discovers she’s pregnant to Nick, but the course to true love is not smooth when she must deal with a love rival, four hostile boys, and a repentant ex husband who’s been conned out of his money by the woman he threw Jackie over for.'
