  • Light romantic adventure

    An adventure in a new country forged by the ghosts of the old country. Beautiful descriptions of the high country in Victoria and it’s legendary brumbies and bush rangers. The thread of colour running through the entire story.

  • Historical Fiction set in Colonial Australia.

    Anne Brown lives in Raphoe in County Donegal, Ireland, her family live in poverty and she feels as plain as her name. One night, when all the young people of the village celebrate Beltane, she’s tricked, she leaves Ireland and travels to England. In London she makes a new life for herself, her fortunes change when she’s left some money and a ticket to Colonial Australia. A chance to escape her past, a fresh start and in a brand new country. Sir John Worthington dies, his son Will and daughter Marigold are stunned when their father’s last will is read. He’s left his money and Mari’s dowry from her mother to his mistress and they can’t believe it. Poor Mari, she thought her fiancée Robert will stand by her, with no dowry and he ends their engagement. The siblings decide to travel to Australia, going with them is Will’s best friend Charlie Tuner, he’s a talented painter and they hope they can all improve their financial situation in Australia. A heartbroken Mari has a terrible journey to Australia, she suffers from sea sickness and is relieved to make it onto dry land. Will and Charles venture out, to explore Melbourne and they meet Thomas McIntosh. He’s a successful businessman, he owns a winery in South Australia and land in Victoria. Will’s rather taken with Tom’s daughter Alice, he has political aspirations, she comes from a good family and Alice and Mari become friends. Charlie, Tom, Mari visit the high country of the Victorian Alps, it's full of wild horses called brumbies, they might be small and they can run fast. Charlie finds inspiration for his painting, he also meets a mysterious exotic dancer called Miss. Love, he falls madly in love and can they possibly have a future together? It’s not only horses that run wild in the high country, a gang of bushrangers are on the loose and danger lurks behind ever bend in the dense bushland. Will, Charlie, Mari and Chrystelle Amour are all trying to make their fortunes in Australia, the choices they made in the past tie them together, loyalties are tested, and can they all follow their hearts and start afresh in the new wild land of Colonial Australia? Where Fortune Lies is the fifth book I have read by Mary-Anne O’Connor, I like her writing style and find her books entertaining. I especially enjoyed reading about the Australian landscape, the wild brumbies and the new wine industry in my home state of South Australia. I received a copy of this book from Harlequin Australia in exchange for an honest review and four stars from me.
