Product Description

Details

As I closed the cover, with tears in my eyes, I thanked God for the legacy left by Suzannah Oakes. That legacy of enduring faith, sacrifice, hope and love truly was Suzannah's Gold." - Deborah Porter FaithWriters.com Suzannah Casey was just twelve years old when she was transported to the Australian colony from Ireland. Though devastated by her circumstances, she was grateful to be given an opportunity to start a new life on the Goulburn Plains with ex-convict, George Oakes. However, Suzannah could never have imagined the trauma and loss that lay ahead of her. She must find the faith and courage to overcome abuse, abandonment, religious bigotry and her own yearnings in order to discover what is more precious than gold. "So many unexpected events, tumultuous relationships and gut-wrenching dramas! Yet like a golden thread [Suzannah's] faith held her to the last page. This book doesn't follow the expected trend, nor does it gloss over life's problems. It gives a realistic portrayal of the struggle of faith while exposing the deep depravity of mankind." Jo Wanmer, Author of Though the Bud be Bruised. Set in the early colonial days of New South Wales and based on real characters in the mid 1800s, Rebecca's Dream continues the story from Suzannah's Gold. Carol Preston is also the author of the Turning the Tide Series including Mary's Guardian, Charlotte's Angel, Tangled Secrets and Truly Free.

Reviews

Loyalty in Convict TimesReview by Annie
A stirring historical saga, highlighting the tribulations and tenacity of early Australian pioneer settlers. Suzannah arrives in the convict settlement of New South Wales after being nabbed by the constabulary on the streets of an Irish town for being out after curfew. She is fortunate enough, a few months after landing, to be offered a place with Caroline Chisholm.

Despite heartbreak and a troubled marriage, she remains loyal to her husband. The conflict she feels as she falls in love with her brother-in-law and he with her brings a poignant element to the story. They are obvious soul-mates... and her choice was never going to be an easy one.

A finely-wrought story, evoking both the conflict of the times and the deeps of the human heart. (Posted on 18/02/2016)
