About This Book:

Crushed at Culloden, driven from their Highland crofts and transported to Australia... the Douglas family is no stranger to injustice. The Encounter Bay Whaling Station, on the wild, windswept southern coast of Australia, is at the very edge of civilization. But at least Bonnie Douglas and her father have their freedom -- until Sergeant Rowan Elliott arrives.

Bonnie's father is accused of murder and she is driven to bushranging, fighting injustice and taunting the troopers with her rebel song. She is pursued relentlessly by Sergeant Elliott, across trackless lands, to places where no white woman has been before.

But beneath the fury and the hurt, alongside her determination to right injustice, and as an undercurrent to every vengeful thought she has had about Rowan Elliott, there lies an attraction that can no longer be denied.

Rebel Girl is a breathtaking story set in Australia's turbulent past, and Bonnie Douglas, another unforgettable Australian heroine.
