David Mountford is handsome, rich, a little cynical about women - and as master of the legendary cattle station Southern Cross, he's one of the most powerful men in the Australian outback.
Now he's about to meet his fate . . . in the person of a beautiful woman - Roishin Grant.
Margaret Way takes great pleasure in her work and works hard at her pleasure. She enjoys tearing off to the beach with her family at weekends, loves haunting galleries and auctions and is completely given over to French champagne `for every possible joyous occasion'. She was born and educated in the river city of Brisbane, Australia, and now lives within sight and sound of beautiful Moreton Bay.
