Return to the High Country




In the beginning there had been only High Peaks, the MacLeod family property in the heart of Australia's rugged high country. Andrew and Anne MacLeod struggled on the land to give David, their only son and heir, a better life.

Wracked by grief following his father's death, David is determined to succeed. With the MacLeod love of the land running in his blood, and the beautiful Catriona at his side, he builds an impressive empire of grazing properties for the sons he hopes will follow him.

But grooming a suitable heir proves as challenging and heartbreaking as rural life itself. It is David's passion for his beloved high country, and the support of the women in his life, that keep his dream alive.

Here is a story that will transport you to the heartland of Australia's bush and keep you spellbound till the very last page.

'If you're looking for a saga that provides action, romance and intrigue with a particular Australia flavour, then look no further then Return to the High Country.'Southern Highland News
