By Challinor, Deborah
The second rivetting installment in The Smuggler's Wife series by one of our leading historical novelists. She was Maori, aged anywhere between three and five years old. Her dirty, matted hair hung past her shoulders, and sweet, heart-shaped little face was filthy. When Kitty Far...rell is offered a trinket by a street urchin, her implulsive response will change both of their lives forever, and place an unexpected strain on Kitty's marriage. For the past four years, she has sailed the high seas on the trading vessel Katipo with Rian, her wild Irish adventurur, but when they return to the Bay of Islands in 1845, they find themselves in the midst of a bloody affray. Their loyalties and their love are sorely tested, and Kitty's past comes back to haunt her when she encounters the bewitching child she names Amber. As the action swirls around them, Kitty and Rian must battle to be reunited as they fight for their lives and watch friends and enemies alike succumb to the madness of war and the fatal seduction of hatred.Read more
