AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Australian Dreaming is about finding love, but also about finding yourself. Anne McGill is a young Scottish woman left alone in her tiny village after the recent death of her mother: her parent and also her closest friend. A chance meeting with the fascinating Peter Young, a visiting Australian surgeon, leads to whirlwind romance but also to doubts and fears about her future. Struggling to decide what to make of her life, Anne travels to Australia and is intrigued by its Aboriginal culture, meets Peter's family and friends - and discovers that he is already married with a young daughter. There are other, more mysterious challenges when determined attempts are made on her life. Who would want to kill a young Scottish girl with no family and no money? And why? Encountering all this in the demanding environment of Australia's vast Outback, Anne learns to come to terms with her own life. Even a young woman who has never before left her little village can learn what it is to dream.' (Publisher's blurb)
