When Cornwall's copper mines begin to close at the end of the 1870s, many men leave for the golden land of Australia, including Sam, the man Emily's vicar father believes isn't good enough for her. When her father dies and Emily learns she can't stay at the vicarage, she sets out for Australia.

About the Author:

E V Thompson was born in London and spent nine years in the Navy before joining Bristol police. He moved to Hong Kong, then Rhodesia and had over 200 stories published before returning to England to become a full-time writer. In 1977 Chase the Wind won the Best Hist Novelist Award.

From AudioFile:

In Thompson's three-hanky historical romance, a minister's plucky daughter hunts for her suitor, who has left the impoverished mines of 1870s Cornwall for the wilds of Australia, where he has vanished. While the characters and situations seem conventional, the author presents them in graceful, straightforward prose against a rich and convincing tapestry of period detail. British actor/singer Anne Dover has a lovely, dignified voice, which she uses to good advantage in narrative passages. Her considerable mimetic skill and facility with accents serve her well with dialogue. The overall feel is reminiscent of "Masterpiece Theater."
