Adventure, suspense and romance fill this new novel by one of today's most popular authors. Victoria Holt's heroine, Nora Tamasin, is a strong-willed and courageous young woman who travels to Australia -- where the unspoiled, exotic beauties of the land and the unpredictable passions of the gold rush provide the background for the event that changed her life. Surrounded by hidden dangers and sudden death, Nora found herself, almost against her will, falling under the spell of the powerful and fascinating man known as the Lynx, a man obsessed with his desire for wealth and for revenge. When Nora finally returned to England, and to the magnificent old house he had coveted for 35 years, she realized that she would forever be ruled by the shadow of the Lynx.
