This is a very interesting story, from war and prisoners of war, to love, money, and town building in Australia. An elderly man tells the story of the young woman he met whose life it is he finds interwoven with his.

One of my favorite books. Harrowing story with a happy ending. I love how the heroine turns a legacy from an uncle she barely knew into something special.
