Adelaide - Australia 1892
Sally Smith, daughter of an ex-convict, then finds her way into Adelaide City. A chance encounter with a shy but caring young lawyer may offer a new beginning, but if her past is revealed would it ruin the chances of her newly found happiness?Key characters soon come into play, all of whom add controversy, colour and a pacey narrative. Part - one offers the foundation and opportunity that provides Patrick with his true family and the platform to begin his longed-for army career.In part - two, the reader is swept halfway around the world in this turn of the century, family saga. Taking in the lifestyle and sights of Hawaii, to majestic England, ending with The Light Horse battles in the Middle East. For the Love of Patrick is filled with love, lust, untapped ambition and intrigue.
I enjoyed it so much I brought a few more copies as gifts and then found I couldn't buy it in Sydney, but wanted to keep a copy for myself and had to purchase online as the publishers are in UK.

Seriously good read
You won't be able to put this one down! Fantastic plot, character development and sense of adventure. Never a dull moment.
Definitely I would buy more books by the author.
I really enjoyed and loved reading this book "For the love of Patrick", loved the era it was set in, very engaging characters and was pleasantly surprised by some of the characters. I actually finished it in 4 days, now I can't wait for the following books. Honestly, I can highly recommend this book. Congratulations to the author Dor Slinkard.

A rollicking good tale.
Well rounded characters, that kept me glued to the book. I read it in 3 days. It is a real page turner. It is one of 3 books in the series I am told, and I await the publication of the others with excitement. A great read and I highly recommend it
