The Trader's Reward is the fifth and final novel in Anna Jacobs' wonderfully atmospheric saga series 'The Traders', set in Europe, the Orient and Australia's Swan River Colony.

When Fergus Deagan's wife dies, leaving him to care for their small children, he doesn't know how to manage. He's always been envious of his older brother Bram's good fortune but now he reluctantly knows he needs his help, and sets off with his family for Western Australia.

When he gets there, he finds that the problems with Bram's ice-making venture are threatening to ruin his brother. Can Fergus help find a solution and make amends with Bram at last?

Comment on this review

This story has something happening on every page...great characters and the ensemble of secondary characters flow easily with some quite complicated plots flowing well around the central story. - Australian Romance Readers Association on The Trader's Sister

A compelling read. - Sun on Freedom's Land

Impressive grasp of human emotions. - The Sunday Times

Anna Jacobs' books are deservedly popular. She is one of the best writers of Lancashire sagas around. - Historical Novels Review

Jacobs excels at creating vivid, memorable characters. - Booklist USA

A gripping storyteller. - Sunday Star Times, Auckland, NZ

This is a fascinating insight into a piece of Australia's history that receives little attention. - Newcastle Herald, Australia on Freedom's Land
