'Blow the Wind Southerly is a story of adventure and intrigue set against the background of World War 1 and a mother's attempt to see her daughter disinherited in favour of her son.
'Harry Drew, an intelligent and sensitive boy from a poor family falls in love with Sarah Jane (Janie) Byrnes, daughter of his employer. But their love and Janie's claim to her father's estate seem destined for failure as her mother schemes to get rid of them. The story ranges from the grime of an English industrial town to the sparkling tropical seas of northern Australia and the blood soaked trenches of northern France, as Harry and Janie fight for survival and search for each other in a world that has gone mad.'
