To Chase the Storm/Watt, Peter/Paper/0330364855/S003-A
Pan Macmillan Australia
Major Patrick Duffy is torn by conflicting duties: his oath to the Queen is unwavering as she gathers her armies together to march on the Boers of southern Africa, but his duty to his family is equally clear. But when his beautiful wife Catherine leaves him for another, returning to her native Ireland, PatrickÆs broken heart propels him out of the Sydney Macintosh home and into yet another bloody war. However the battlefields of Africa hold more than nightmarish terrors and unspeakable conditions for Patrick û they bring him in contact with one he thought long dead and lost to him. Back in Australia, the mysterious Michael OÆFlynn mentors PatrickÆs youngest son, Alex, and at his grandmotherÆs request takes him on a journey to their Queensland property, Glen View. But will the terrible curse that has inextricably linked the Duffys and Macintoshes for generations ensure that no true happiness can ever come to them? So much seems to depend on Wallarie, the last warrior of the Nerambura tribe, whose mere name evokes a legend approaching myth.
Through the dawn of a new century in a now federated nation, To Chase the Storm charts an explosive tale of love and loss, from South Africa to Palestine, from Townsville to the green hills of Ireland, and to the more sinister politics that lurk behind them.
