In this the fifth book of the Southern Skyes series, the era is ripe for historic battles, during a time spanning the Boer Wars, Australian federation, women’s suffrage, and World War I. Among those warriors for progress are members of the Skye and McCabe families, not just on the battlefield, but in their homes and communities as well.
As the new generation seeks to forge an enlightened future, the tentacles of the old guard continue to breech the new. Prejudices, forbidden love, and the grip of legacies prove they are without bounds.
And so the saga continues, set against a backdrop of hope brought about by the emergence of a new nation.

Sharyn Bradford Lunn has devoted a decade researching the Australian history books for centuries-old data on her country’s origins, including the penal colonies that were established in the early 1800s, the aboriginal tribes that interacted with the soldiers and newcomers, gold-digging, and more.
The result? Her six-book Southern Skyes series. Sharyn blends fact with the watercolors of fiction, painting a series of stories about a family whose roots begin with a New South Wales soldier and branch out far and wide into a “Skye” of immense proportions and heart.
Start with The Soldier’s Seed, and meander through six tales, complete with a full palette of adventures and emotions, some historically documented and others carefully crafted from creative seeds.
