Book Description

Three Blake sisters remain in the Swan River Colony in 1866 and two are quite happy to forge new lives for themselves there.The third, Xanthe, yearns to see the world. But even if she could afford to travel, could she persuade her beloved twin to let her go? Maia has fallen in love with their employer, and would surely be happiest staying behind with him.Xanthe's opportunity comes in the form of a handsome Irishman bringing some of the sisters' inheritance from England. But for Maia, the same man brings trouble in his wake - someone who has the power to make her life a misery.Both sisters' reserves of courage and endurance will be tested before they can finally find a home to call their own.

    More About the Author

    Anna Jacobs grew up in Lancashire and emigrated to Australia, but still visits the UK regularly to see her family and do research, something she loves. She is addicted to writing and she figures she'll have to live to be 120 at least to tell all the stories that keep popping up in her imagination and nagging her to write them down. She's also addicted to her own hero, to whom she's been happily married for many years.

    Anna also writes fantasy novels as Shannah Jay.

    I have read the other two books leading to this one, but I must say that I found this one disappointing, but still worth
    reading though.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, as usual! 24 Jan. 2012
    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    I love Anna Jacobs, and this is just another example of a book that I found very difficult to put down. I'd love to have the time to read the whole thing in one go! My only disappointment is that the trilogy is now complete.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Destiny's Path by Anna Jacobs 26 Sept. 2012
    By Erin
    This is the third book in a wonderful series by Anna Jacobs. The Swan River Series lives the story of the four Blake sisters who were effectively transported from Lancashire to Western Australia under challenging circumstance. I loved the first two stories, Farewell to Lancashire and Beyond the Sunset, and eagerly watched for the release date of Destiny's Path. I felt as though there was unfinished business in my mind as two Brake sisters were unsettled and I desperately needed to know what happened to them. Now that I've read Destiny's Path I'm content. I'm happy to have been guided through another wonderful Anna Jacobs adventure. Five more stars to this talented and entertaining author.

    My only problem now is waiting for three more novels, The Trader Series. It's my understanding they follow-on from the Swan River series and will arrive in stores eventually. The Trader's Wife is due out next month and is to be followed early next year by The Trader's Sister. Heaven only knows what the third book of the series will be called. I'm bothered, I suspect I may know who the trader is. I'm sure I recognised him in the Swan River Series, but I've been wrong before. I've no idea what's going to happen but I'm going to find out the day The Trader's Wife is released for downloading. I can't wait. Anna Jacobs has fingers that create addictive stories.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting end to a great series 30 May 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The final book in the Swan River trilogy finds Pandora happily settled back in England. Cassandra is also happily settled in Australia, but the twins, Xanthe and Maia find for the first time in their lives that they want separate things. Maia is happy to stay working for their employer, but Xanthe wants to travel, although when she does set off on her travels, she finds it is not as enjoyable or safe as she thought it would be, which leads to a difficult decision.

    I really enjoyed this series and was sad to see it end, but have discovered there is another five book series called the Traders series which continues the story and I am looking forward to see what these are like next.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Destiny's Path 24 Dec. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition
    This author was recommended to me by a friend. It was enthralling and well written. Although I realised I had read the last of a triology first, it was still extremely enjoyable. I am now off to get the first two and also any other books by Anna Jacobs I can find. This book deserves 5 stars plus.
