Eighteen-year-old Hannah Conroy has always dreamed of following in her father's footsteps as a healer. But in nineteenth-century England, the medical profession is closed to women. She sees midwifery as a back door into that world, but her fledgling career is crushed by personal tragedy. Seeking to escape a possible murder conviction in England, Hannah's world is literally turned upside down as she boards a boat bound for Melbourne. Young and naïve, with some laboratory notes and a handful of medical instruments, she hopes Australia is a place of a new beginning and a fresh start, a place where she can begin a midwife practice. Arriving during a period of enormous change in Australia, Hannah faces a myriad of challenges. Not only must she fight for acceptance as a medical professional, but she falls in love with and must decide between two men: Neal Scott, an American photographer seeking a new life in Australia, and Jamie O'Brien, a rowdy outlaw fleeing arrest. This Golden Land presents a sweeping historical saga of Australia and a love story that neither time nor distance can erase.
