Gold, is book one of the richly drawn, evocative, The Stolen Years, seven book series.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Fife's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Written by acclaimed rural-lit, historical fiction author and artist Ryn Shell.
Something slightly different in the way of historical fiction. I’d say historical romance — but it’s much more than that. This book may be read as a stand-alone story or in series order.
