With a heavy heart, she kisses Patrick softly and leaves him on the convent steps…Adelaide, 1892: Beautiful Sally Smith, daughter of a convict, arrives in Adelaide, emotionally and physically drained. A chance encounter with a shy lawyer may offer a new beginning. But if her past is revealed, will it shatter her newly-found happiness? Passionate Bernadette, who supports the Suffragettes and the rights of women, finds her equal in the headstrong, wilful Jum Watt. But their union takes an unexpected twist when fate plays a hand. In this sweeping tale of love, lust and the spectre of World War I, two couples are the starting point for this fast-moving, family saga set during turn-of-the-century Australia. With secrets, untapped desires and unbridled ambition, For the Love of Patrick is a romantic ride through a fascinating time.
