The Homestead on the River is the debut novel of Rosie MacKenzie, spanning continents and generations in an historical family saga.

I’m still waiting on my copy but our members have been getting lost in the pages of theirs so I look forward to hearing what they have to say about the book.

Synopsis from the Publishers website:

An unforgettable tale of love, loss and betrayal from an exciting new Australian voice in historical fiction.

In stark contrast to her own childhood during the last days of the Raj in India, the spectacular beauty surrounding their home, Rathgarven in Ireland has proven to be a happy place for Kathleen O’Sullivan and her husband, James, to raise their four children. But Kathleen is no stranger to heartbreak, and when the family is faced with losing everything, she knows they will need to adapt to survive. Even if that means leaving their beloved home and moving to Australia to start afresh.

Lillie O’Sullivan knows that her mother and father haven’t been entirely truthful about the reasons for their move to Australia. But as they settle into their new home in rural New South Wales she is willing to give it a chance. That is, until the secrets her parents have kept for so long finally catch up with them.

Secrets that have the power to destroy their family and ruin their future.

The Homestead on the River is published by Harlequin Mira and is available now where all good books are sold.
