Annie White, freed after serving her seven years as a convict in Sydney, gets a visitor who will change her life. She starts a baking business, and just as it's making a profit, she's then asked to assist another freed convict, named Sam Corbett. Annie nurses him back to health, they marry and they settle into a life together, they are barely making ends meet when she realises she's pregnant.

Sam has his own past laid bare, and he must adjust to the revelations. They both must face their accusers, and they find that the answers to their questions are not what they thought.

Their life experiences seem to cling tightly to them both, unable to shake it; finally, they end up back in England, facing their ghosts and discover they are not whom they think they are.

How can they turn their anger and spite into love and forgiveness?

The Dance of Life goes on.

About the author (2021)

Sheila Hunter and Sara Powter were a passionate mother and daughter team of amateur genealogy. While working together on their family tree, Sheila and Sara made a captivating discovery. Four convicts, with four very different perspectives; sent to Australia during Convict times. Before her passing in 2002, Sheila adapted some of these histories into enchanting stories, the Australian Colonial Trilogy. She also left a half finished fourth story which is now completed by Sara. _Dancing to her own tune_ now too has a sequel, _Amelia_s Tears_.Sara later had the trilogy published. And the two new ones should be in print by 2022. It inspired her to write more. The Lockley_s of Parramatta were created. Vividly living through the Colonial Era, this series delves further into the theme of overcoming adversity in Colonial Parramatta and how it developed. The demise of the Convict system and discovery of various gems and minerals. Sara intricately weaves real archival data, and a charming narrative, to create a series of tales of faith, love, loss, and redemption. Sara has now completed Sheila Hunter_s last unfinished manuscript. Watch for _Dancing to her own tune_ and its companion story _Amelia_s Tears_. It_s a prequel for all of their Colonial novels. Travelling the East coast of Australia in their retirement, Sara and her husband Stephen enjoyed the deep sense of belonging gained by uncovering a familial connection to a new area. And so, over two hundred years after her family_s arrival in Australia as convicts, Sara continues the Australian Colonial stories with these delightful and insightful stories.
