Synopsis: Winifred Gunn is one of thousands of Scots forced to emigrate from their homeland to the colonies in Australia. During the long voyage, Winnie falls in love with a young man named George Mclean, and they are soon married. Winnie has already been promised to a wealthy, unscrupulous Englishman named Jack Carrigan, who is accustomed to getting his way. When the couple arrives in Australia, Jack is outraged to learn that his plan to marry Winnie has been thwarted, and he vows to get revenge. With hard work, George and Winnie build a successful family business, and George's dream of owning a cheese factory is realized. That dream is destroyed when George dies suddenly and Jack Carrigan reappears, winning Winnie's trust and tricking her into signing a deed that turns over the entire family business to him. Winnie is left alone and bereft with her seven children. One of those children, Mary, moves to the United States with an American soldier, hoping for a better life. But the years ahead are nothing like the fairytale she imagined. Mary struggles through several marriages, alcoholism, prostitution, and deportation, all while trying to care for her two sons. One of those sons grows up to become a powerful figure who finally avenges the great wrongs done to the McLean family so many years ago.

About the Author: Alan lives in Reno with his wife, Carrie, and both have children that live in the area. Working as Project Manager at present, he has had a few other jobs such as truck driver, security guard, electrician, and worked for 26 years in the Federal Government. He is the Alan in the story of which most is true; Mary, his mother actually died in 1962 in Sydney. The main characters in the story are all real; however most of them are dead. The only remaining uncle is "Dasher" and he lives in Tasmania. For relaxation Alan enjoys going to movies, boating, fishing, ATVing, and traveling with his wife and children when he can. He has started the sequel to this book and has an idea for a third.
