She crossed the world to marry a stranger but fell in love with someone else

A woman's journey

When Elizabeth Morton’s father wants her to travel to the other side of the world to marry a stranger, she thinks he’s gone mad. This is 1920 and a woman has rights - she's not going to be subject to an arranged marriage. But she's reckoned without the brother-in-law she's always despised, who shatters her comfortable world, leaving her no choice but to sail to Australia.

When Michael Winterbourne, a lead miner wakes up with a hangover after his engagement celebrations, he has no idea he is about to cause a terrible tragedy that will change his life and destroy his family.

When Michael and Elizabeth meet on the SS Historic, bound for Sydney, they are reluctant emigrants from England. They hope their troubles are over, but they're only just beginning.

A Greater World is a historical romance set in the early 1920s. The story moves from the dales of Cumberland and the docks of Liverpool to Sydney and the beautiful Blue Mountains.

A Greater World is a B.R.A.G Medallion Honoree.

˃˃˃ Interview with the Author - Q - What is the key theme of A Greater World?

A- I write about people forced out of familiar surroundings and circumstances and compelled to adapt to an alien environment that tests and stretches them. The heroine, Elizabeth, has grown up in a privileged background, surrounded by friends and family and is flung into a new life she doesn't want in Australia - where she doesn't want to be.

˃˃˃ Q - What kind of reader enjoys A Greater World

A - Anyone who likes Australia, the 1920s, and twentieth century historical fiction and romance. The book is very popular with expatriates and those who love travel.

˃˃˃ Q What makes A Greater World different?

A - The thing most often said is that I write about nuanced characters you believe in and care about. While my novels are historical fiction they always deal with very relevant modern themes.

Enjoy the book and thanks for reading!
