Jan Selbourne – The Remittance Man
Banished to the colony of New South Wales, Adam Stamford’s life is one of backbreaking work and few comforts until a letter from his father. The man who disowned him now begs him to return, to stop the blackmailer before the honourable family name and estate are shamed and bankrupted. Adam arrives home to England celebrating Bonaparte’s defeat at Waterloo and the extortionist demanding more. It is beneath the aristocratic façade of his ancestral home that Adam discovers the depth of his brother’s treason and betrayal, but nothing makes sense, until Carolyn and the truth.
