A spell-binding, multi-generational novel, set in the ruthless world of movie-making.

On a blistering hot day in 1850, George and Richard Ross take their first steps on Australian soil after three long months at sea. All they have is each other, and a quarterly remittance from their irate father who has banished them to the Colonies.

A decade on, and the brothers are the owners of successful vineyard, Araluen, nestled in a beautiful green valley not far from Adelaide. Now a successful businessman, George has laid down the roots of his own Ross dynasty, born of the New World. But building a family empire – at any cost – can have a shattering effect on the generations to come …

From the South Australian vineyards of the 1850s to the opulence and corruption of Hollywood’s golden age… From the relentless loneliness of the outback to mega-budget movie-making in modern-day New York… Judy Nunn weaves an intricate web of characters and locations in this spellbinding saga of the Ross family and its inescapable legacy of greed and power.
