The story of the Mannion family continues after the Bligh rebellion. As the young Mannions grow to maturity, so too the settlement at Sydney Cove develops into a town of substance. And later, the longings of young Miles Mannion are echoed in the efforts of the settlers to spread to the west. The discovery of a route over the Blue Mountains west of Sydney means there will be no further barrier.

This is the second book in a trilogy,following"The Timeless Land".Like the first in the series, it is superbly written, drawing the reader into life in Australia during the early settlement days.It is so easy to become lost in this book, really feeling that you are participating in life as it was in such a different era. You become a convict, a free settler,a governor, an aborigine; at the same time being swept up in the saga of the fictitious Mannion and Prentice families. An easy, enjoyable,engaging and relaxing read.
