Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Victoria Holt is universally popular for her breathtaking works of romance and fiction. Filled with strong-willed characters and set in exotic historical eras, each of her books spins an unforgettable tale. The Shadow of the Lynx follows beautiful young Nora Tamasin as she leaves her home in Victorian England. Recently orphaned, she sails toward the untamed lands of gold-rush Australia. Her journey will take her to the Lynx: the man her father designated as her guardian before he died. Rich, powerful, and commanding, the Lynx is a man who can safeguard her finances, but cannot control her heart. More than 56 million of Victoria Holt’s books have been sold worldwide. She also writes under the pen names of Jean Plaidy and Philippa Carr. Through the lyrical voice of narrator Virginia Leishman, The Shadow of the Lynx richly captures all the nuances of a family’s tempestuous passion and thirst for power.

Wow. Am so glad Audible has finally placed her

Beginning was different than I envisioned. Since I can usually figure out a book within two to three chapters, this one had me good. It is her very METHOD OF STORY TELLING that intrigues me. She would have made Alfred Hitchcock a great wife. So grateful to find her here on Audible. As famous lines go, "Please Sir, I want some more!"
