Build an empire. Lead a dynasty. At any cost.
From the South Australian vineyards of the 1850s to mega-budget movie-making in modern-day New York, Araluen tells the story of one man's quest for wealth and position and its shattering effect on succeeding generations.
Turn-of-the-century Sydney gaming houses . . . the opulence and corruption of Hollywood's golden age . . the New York party set . . . the colour and excitement of the America's Cup . . . the relentless loneliness of the outback . . . Judy Nunn weaves an intricate web of characters and locations in this spellbinding sage of the Ross family and its inescapable legacy of greed and power.
