I alway enjoy historical books set in our Australia. This book by one of my favourite Australian writers is one I really enjoyed and not to be missed. It is the first of three books and the next one, Black Forest Redemption, which is also now published is even better!

About the Author 
Amanda Deed grew up in the South Eastern suburbs of Melbourne in a Christian home, and found faith at an early age. She has followed her passion to serve the Lord through music and literature since her teen years. Now married, with three children, Amanda enjoys the variety of being a mother, finance administrator, musician and historical romance writer. Her debut novel, The Game, won the 2010 CALEB Prize for fiction, and Ellenvale Gold was a finalist for the same prize in 2012. For more information go to


About the Book:

It is the time of Australia’s harsh rogue-filled goldrush of the 1850’s when Miss Penelope Worthington suddenly finds herself orphaned, isolated and alone. With a large sheep station to run single-handedly, she has little option but to enlist the aid of a mysterious, but sinister stranger.
But who is the more treacherous? Gus—the scruffy, trespassing, ex-convict who co-incidentally shows up looking for work just when she desperately needs a farmhand or Rupert—the handsome, wealthy neighbour who would willingly marry her at the drop of a hat and solve her apparent dilemma?
Repeatedly, her faith is tested as she faces the unforgiving elements, deceit, lies and uncertainty. But where and how will it all end? But…is it the end? Will vengeance return or
will Penny’s faith prevail?


  1. Hi Mary. Thanks for the lovely comments. You are such a blessing. XXOO :)

  2. It's the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth! Several years ago there were so few Christian novels by Aussie authors for me to enjoy and yours are a real delight.

  3. Having just enjoyed watching The Man From Snowy River 1 and 2...this Canadian is intrigued to explore some Australian historicals. Thanks for sharing, Mary!
