Harry Street’s character is the catalyst for this book which binds the several principals and their separate actions to make the story flow. Although the work is fiction, Harry Street was a real person from the author’s boyhood. A gentleman, always affable and decidedly English. However, gentleman he may have been, the author could never reconcile why he succumbed to his exile so readily and why his family turned their back on their son. The author has taken a liberty and changed Harry’s easy disposition to express his wrath for Harry’s ready acceptances of his circumstances. Too, the time frame has been altered to reveal an entwined vendetta that takes the reader from the horrors of the First World War, to the pampered lives of the aristocracy and the vastness of Australia. A race to secure aspirations for one man, domination for another and reparation for yet another.

A retired high school teacher, Darrel McGovern lives with his wife, Helen, in a modest home in the Newcastle suburb of Fletcher. Their family have left the roost, and they are proud grandparents. Until retirement, Darrel hadn’t found the time to pursue his passion for Australian history, research or writing. As well as writing, Darrel is a keen fisherman, lawn bowler and golfer. He loves being surrounded by family and friends, and along with Helen visits Adelaide and Darwin to see his grandchildren as often as possible.
