Dark Southern Sun: A Story About Love, Friendship, and Honor
Dark Southern Sun: A Story About Love, Friendship, and Honor for Kindle
Near death, Ryan washes up on the southern shore of Australia in 1845. Rescued by two native children and nursed to health by their parents, fate entwines his life and theirs through joy and sorrow for the next ten years. Set against the thrilling backdrop of Australia’s formative years, Ryan witnesses the displacement of the Aboriginal people and their cultural heritage. He faces the adventure and chaos of the world’s largest gold rush, and the battles and bloodshed of Australia’s largest armed rebellion. Throughout, two very different women—one white, one black—romance Ryan as he struggles from penury to prosperity. As he rises in social esteem as an astute businessman and cunning street fighter, Ryan creates two bitter enemies—one white, one black. In time, they set aside their vast racial and emotional hatreds and combine forces. Can Ryan survive their murderous attempt to destroy him and save the good life he has built? This novel explores the human pillars of love, honor and friendship, and tests their limits under duress.
The story fits the same historical time frame as "The Secret River" by Australian author Kate Grenville.
