A century-old curse comes full circle…
For a hundred years they have never forgiven, never forgotten. Now, the war between the Duffy and Macintosh dynasties will be brought to its stunning conclusion.
Patrick Duffy continues to go into the field of battle with his childhood friend from the Glen View property they’d grown up on. Terituba is a remaining survivor of the natives of the area. As Patrick is a natural leader he is enlisted to take out a surprise raid on guerrilla soldiers who had been working behind enemy lines. This leads him to battle a ghost from the past as he’d been left orphaned when his mother had died in a Changi prison. His opponent had been raised there by his mother.
Michael Macintosh is Sarah’s son and had been able to visit his Aunt Jessie and Uncle David at Glen View in his youth had realised his mother was manipulative and calculating. He follows his own path to avoid her obsessive control. Michael leaves first as a sailor, then soldier and mercenary, facing a battle in many arenas.
Sarah Macintosh continues to plan to crush her rival sister-in-law Jessica Duffy-Macintosh, who also controls a thriving business. Sarah ignores the century-old curse at her peril. Believing Michael would return from war and take over the business. After she caused Jessica to be financially ruined, the Macintosh dynasty would again rule.
The start book blurb above states this book is the conclusion of the Duffy and Macintosh family feud. This is a twelve book series and it is stunning from beginning to end. Returning to the rivalry behind the curse is like meeting up with an old friend, one that deals with horrific wartime battles, subterfuge and deceit within families and in the political arena. Again I heartily recommend Peter’s books as he is Australia’s, Wilbur Smith. These books continue to be page-turners that envelop the reader.
