By Beryl Armstrong (A Crawley author)
The Herringtons have a secret. A deadly secret. And no matter how far they roam to escape the shadows of the past, Fate seems determined to find them out.
Condemned to hang for a murder they didn’t commit, Dan and Tom – father and eldest son of the indomitable Herrington clan – make a dramatic escape. Yet the past relentlessly stalks the fugitive family. Soon their new life as Gloucestershire smallholders is torn apart. On the run again, the family must now seek refuge and embrace a new life across the oceans in the outposts of the empire. Australia. The year is 1898.
Here, on a remote sheep station in the unforgiving outback, they can surely bury their secrets and at last escape their past. Yet destiny has its own agenda, and history has a nasty habit of repeating itself. Will the Herringtons finally manage to lay the ghosts of their personal history to rest here or could they find an even safer haven in New Zealand? Will Fate have the last say?
A novel of drama, conflict, passions and pioneering spirit, Where Shadows Fall spans continents and sows the seeds of an epic family saga that begins on the cusp of a new century and looks forward to a wide open future.
