"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 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 discovers 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'"--P. [4] of cover.

this must have been an early book, she changes topics in the middle of a paragraph almost - without setting you up to know you are reading about someone else.... there were some typos that were upsetting in the middle of a page.
The story is interesting and I like reading about Australia but this was very frustrating - good thing the rest of her books don't seem to do this.

LIked it very much except the end had too many holes in the explanation of what had happened to the heroine in her early childhood.The author should have taken more time to create a more credible better-developed ending.
