Notes:
London, 1891. Harriet Cameron and her beloved sister Sarah have been brought up by their father, radical thinker James. But when adventurer Henry Vincent arrives on the scene, the sisters' lives are changed forever. Sarah marries Henry and embarks on a voyage to Australia. Harriet, intensely missing Sarah, must decide whether to help her father with his life's work or to devote herself to painting. When James dies unexpectedly, Harriet follows Sarah to Australia, and afterwards into the outback, where she is alienated by the casual violence and great injustices of life there. Her rejuvenation begins with her friendship with an Aboriginal stockman and her growing love for the landscape. But this fragile happiness is soon threatened by murders at a nearby cattle station and a menacing station hand who is seeking revenge.

Note: When Anika Molnar flees her home country of Hungary not long before the break-up of the Soviet Union, she carries only a small suitcase - and a beautiful and much-loved painting of an auburn-haired woman in a cobalt blue dress from her family's hidden collection. Arriving in Australia, Anika moves in with her aunt in Sydney, and the painting hangs in pride of place in her bedroom. But one day it is stolen in what seems to be a carefully planned theft, and Anika's carefree life takes a more ominous turn. Sinister secrets from her family's past and Hungary's fraught history cast suspicion over the painting's provenance, and she embarks on a gripping quest to uncover the truth.
