The Trader's Gift

The Trader's Gift

Happy and content with a beautiful wife and thriving family, successful trader Bram is determined to help his two friends Mitchell and Dougal find wives.

In England, Eleanor Prescott has not forgotten the ship’s captain who was a true friend to her. Dougal McBride told her to come to him when she was ready. When her ailing husband dies, she wonders if she dare return to Western Australia. Will Dougal still want her after nearly a year?

Mitchell Nash, Bram Deagan’s friend in Australia, has asked his cousin in England whether he knows of any lady who might be suitable for him to marry. Though what sort of woman would make such an arduous voyage to marry someone she’s never met? For one widow, however, desperate to keep her young son from a cruel relative’s clutches, Mitchell’s invitation is a lifeline she will grasp with both hands.

Clutching their courage in both hands, Eleanor and Jacinta take a huge risk on the chance of happiness and set off for Australia. But the troubles of their old lives can’t be easily left behind . . .

Impressive grasp of human emotions.

'A compelling read'
<i>Sun</i> on FREEDOM'S LAND
'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
This is a fascinating insight into a piece of Australia's history that receives little attention.
<i>Newcastle Herald</i>, Australia on FREEDOM'S LAND
Jacobs excels at creating vivid, memorable characters.

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