A powerful and unforgettable saga set against the panoramic countryside of Australia.
Philadelphia Gordon is an artist, a riverboat skipper, a beautiful and independent woman. Orphaned by a shipwreck, Philadelphia grows up on the banks of her beloved Murray River, seemingly destined for a conventional life. But tragedy leads her first to a successful career as a painter, then to marriage with the dashing captain of the paddle-steamer that bears her name.
This epic novel, set against the panoramic countryside and winding rivers of Australia, is her story, as powerful and unforgettable as its heroine.
The book was fine until it ran out at 3 hours and 30 mins out of the advertised. 6 hours. Not happy as the book is $23.
