It’s 1866, and the Blake twins face a dilemma. Maia is not only a homebody,but in love with her employer, and though he's already married, she refuses to leave him and the isolated homestead in Western Australia. Xanthe isn't happy there and has to separate from her twin for the first time in their lives. She's eager to travel, but in 1866 that isn't easy for a young woman on her own. Fate brings Xanthe more than the opportunity to travel, a man to love - but there are problems, because he's above her in status and must think of his family inheritance. Maia has to face the wife of her beloved, a strange, twisted woman, who can be dangerous. Will the twins find happiness with the men of their choice or will Destiny play more cruel tricks on them?

Molly Peel has been downtrodden for years, but everyone has their sticking point. At her daughter’s wedding she’s sidelined in favour of her ex-husband’s new wife. When an accident puts her in hospital no one visits her. Her son, who lives with her, isn’t paying his share of expenses. It’s time to move on and make a better life for herself, painful as that may be. 

Molly leaves London, looking for a job, and finds far more than she’d bargained for, including a new chance of love - if she can pluck up the courage to seize the moment. But her ex intends to buy her old family home at a knock-down price and is an expert at dirty tricks to prevent her selling it. Will she find the strength to resist him this time and keep moving on? Or will his emotional blackmail pay off?
