“The Bushranger’s Wife”

The Bushranger's Wife cover

Cover art by Belinda Stevens

How do you tame a wild colonial boy? With an even wilder colonial girl.

Central Highlands of Victoria 1861

Jack the Devil’s reputation precedes him. The most notorious bushranger on the Central Highlands, nothing throws him off his game-until he holds up Prudence Stanforth and her grandmother. Jack can’t help but be captivated by the feisty Pru and her lack of fear in the face of danger.

Weeks later, Pru crosses paths with the respectable businessman Jack Fairweather, and it’s not long before she recognises him as the bushranger who stole her favourite necklace. His price for the locket’s return is a kiss – a kiss that ignites sparks in them both.

When Pru discovers her grandmother has been keeping a devastating secret, running away with Jack the Devil is the perfect escape for her broken heart. The dangerous nature of his less than salubrious occupation is a poetic contradiction to her sheltered upbringing, and only fuels their passion.
But as life becomes more complicated, will the return of dark elements from Jack’s past ruin their chance at happiness?

Praise for “The Bushranger’s Wife”

I really enjoy Cheryl Adnams’ writing and have read a lot of her stories. I loved The Girl From Eureka, and this story, The Bushranger’s Wife is set just a few years later than the time of the Eureka Stockade. Jack Fairweather is a character first introduced in The Girl From Eureka. We meet him on his bush ranging escapades very early in this story where Jack robs Prudence and her grandmother on their arrival to Victoria.
Adnams is brilliant at romantic Australian historical fiction, and I look forward to what she comes up with next…
