"A beautiful and poignant coming of age romantic tale that kept me reading from start to finish." Goodreads.

Lucy Fox is sailing to Melbourne in 1906 with her sister Rosa, when a tragic landfall leaves her life entangled with three seamen: gentle Sam, cynical Danny and beautiful Gideon.

After Rosa's scandalous elopement, trader Min-lu draws Lucy into a new world of silks, spices and the silvery pearlshell of Broome: a port in the wild Australian north-west where breaking the rules is a way of life.

The Great War begins and Lucy's lover must go to sea, where ruthless U-boats are stalking the last of the great sailing ships.

But even when peace returns, the influenza pandemic comes with it ... and Lucy, far from home, discovers how bitterly she has been betrayed.

Silver Highways is the foundation novel of the Tempo series, by the winner of the Mountbatten Maritime Award and the Western Australian Premier's Book Award for Non-Fiction.
