The Soldier’s Seed, Book One of the Southern Skyes Series, begins the family saga in this novel that captures the wide range of relationships between colonial, convict, and indigenous families during the tumultuous events that defined the early penal colonies of Australia.
Nicholas Thomas, a soldier in the New South Wales Corps, loathes his life in Sydney Town and through a series of events of his own making he finds himself running from his past to what could be an even worse fate. While pioneering a new settlement that encounters one problem after another, he struggles to find his true self and identify what he really wants from life . . . until he meets a woman a soldier shouldn’t love. When tragedy strikes, he is forced to make choices that will affect his descendants for decades to come.
The Soldier’s Seed is a heart-rending adventure and an exciting introduction to Australian history and the epic Southern Skyes series.
Historical Fiction at its best.

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.
