Description

Lovely Belle, the youngest, a talented singer and dancer, tours with a vaudeville troupe as they follow the rodeos and shows of western Queensland. On the romance front, she's being pursued by handsome local Greek Nicos Alexandros, owner of the swankiest cafe in town. But will she choose marriage with Nicos or a life on the stage? Molly reigns as head cook at King's Hotel, and can whip up any stylish gown down to the last bugle bead. However, happiness with her sweetheart Fred is threatened by a terrible twist of fate. Josie, the eldest, has bookish ambitions and a strong spirit, which will be tested to the full when her life takes an unexpected turn. This heart-warming and colourful novel about the power of dreams brings to life Australia's exotic far north of days gone by, with its vibrant mix of cultures and personalities. House on the Hill follows three sisters' joys and heartbreaks - and the difficult choices they have to make that change their lives forever.show more
