They were sailing toward an untamed land of limitless riches, but their dreams seemed to demand a sacrifice of the CODE OF HONOR
Turn-of-the-century Australia holds one of the world's most magnificent settings for this first book in the new Australian Destiny Series. Responding to an offer of indenture, Samantha Connolly and her sisters have attempted to escape a bleak future in Ireland by emigrating to Queensland. Circling half the globe, she discovers a land she never anticipated or desired yet her home is now oceans away!
Their master, sugar planter Cole Sloan, is embroiled in legal tangles and economic woes while trying to keep his plantation afloat. Samantha's middle sister is fortunate to find a beau in the local preacher, and Samantha is drawn to Sloan. But callousness and unethical dealings have sullied the man or is he a victim of his past and present circumstances?
A magnificent first book in a saga born out of a nation of rogues, adventurers and dreamers

Appreciating the wonders of God's creation has always been a favorite pastime for Sandy Dengler. She remembers spending a great deal of time as a child exploring the wood lots around her parent's home in Sidney, Ohio.
Sandy's interest in nature greatly influenced her life as she grew older, as well. After receiving her undergraduate degree at Bowling Degree State University in 1961, she went on to receive a Master's in desert ecology at Arizona State University. One of her courses required that she do a detailed study on one of the major deserts of the world; she chose Australia. As time went by she learned to love this rugged country&a love that is captured quite vividly in her AUSTRALIAN DESTINY series. This is a continuation of THE CODE OF HONOR, a romantic tale of life in the Australian outback and set in the early 1900's.
"elements were somehow more elemental in the past and people lived closer to them. Our todays are so tied to the past," notes Sandy. And, by using the medium of historical fiction, she enjoys the best of both worlds: teaching truths from God's Word, touching lives as she does so, and being able to absorb herself in her writing as she "prowls the starkly beautiful woods and deserts of yesterday."
Sandy and her husband, a park service naturalist, make their home in Washington State, where she continues to write.
