Sydney Cove, 1799, and three years since Governor Phillip departed. Against a background of continuing convict settlement, hunger, rebellion and the terrifying force of a barely understood land, the saga of Ellen Prentice and the Mannion family continues. Stephen Mannion marries the lovely Conor Moore and brings her back for Ellen to serve. Johnny Prentice goes bush - and re-emerges for one last confrontation with his old master.

This is the second book in the series- "The Timeless Land", "Storm of Time", "No Barrier". Sorry - mixed up my review and previously mentioned that "No Barrier" was the second in the series! However the review for this book is the same. A brilliant read. Definitely buy all three books because once you have finished one you will be desperate to start the next! Love the saga of the fictitious characters set against the well researched lifestyle and characters of Australia's early settlement.
