"Absolutely splendid . it sweeps you away." -Cynthia Freeman, "New York Times" bestselling author Set in the untamed landscape of mid-nineteenth century Australia, "The Dreaming" is a rich and potent tale of hidden passion and broken taboo from acclaimed novelist Barbara Wood. "Australia, 1871"-Following her mother's sudden death, Joanna Drury sets sail from India and arrives in Melbourne to claim the property left to her by her mother-and to trace the mysteries of her family's past. From her first steps on shore, Joanna becomes entangled with a lost boy who leads her to the fascinating Hugh Westbrook. She agrees to look after the child, Adam, in exchange for Hugh's help in finding her inheritance. But she falls deeply in love with Hugh and with life at his sheep station, Merinda. When strange nightmares begin to plague her-the same that tormented her mother-Joanna starts to notice the Aborigines' strange reaction to her. Delving into Australia's past, she searches out the tragic events that have marked her family's destiny and her own life, events that happened long ago in the time the Aborigines call "the Dreaming." Full of intriguing historical detail, Wood's compelling story brings the clash of immigrant and Aboriginal cultures to stunning life, capturing the danger, mystery, and romance of an emerging country.
