Tricia McGill

Author Tricia McGillabout this book: Distant Mountains carries on from where we left the characters in Mystic Mountains, and tells Jeremy's (known to all as Remy) story. He has been transported to the settlement of Botany Bay, a town that, although progressing, is still very much a place ruled by the aristocrats and free settlers. Remy makes the mistake of falling in love with the daughter of one of these free settlers who happens to hate convicts, or anyone of a lower class. Remy sets out to improve his circumstances but on the way he has to overcome many obstacles before reaching his goal.

While researching this book I needed to delve into the conditions that were suffered by the military along with the convicts in Moreton Bay. Most convicts were sent north from Sydney Town as Moreton Bay was considered so isolated that no convict would try to escape and if he did had little chance of survival. It is difficult to comprehend that this settlement became the Brisbane we know today.

But over and above all Distant Mountains is a story of enduring love.

• "Tricia McGill takes us to the Australian colonial period in this rather dark saga of Remy and Sara. I love books where the scenery is vivid, there are characters that "live", and the characters are truly to cheer and boo for." — Rose. Romance at Heart

• "Amidst the sweet romance and tenderness, Ms. McGill adds the excitement of spousal abuse, bushrangers, forced marriage, kidnapping, and Remy's imprisonment and torture. She shows that a talented author can take a romance and turn it into so much more." — Brett Scott The Romance Studio
