Fool's Gold by Zana Bell
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An 1866 New Zealand-based tale which stars a plucky aristocratic girl, Guinevere, following her father’s dream. He was a photographer and their goal was to find the very rare moa bird. She sets off into the jungle, gets into trouble and is rescued by an Irishman Finn who has an aversion to the British aristocracy! What fun in a New Zealand jungle; sparks fly, feathers are ruffled and a lovely tale emerges.

If you like Zana Bell you might also like to read books by Rachael Treasure, Lesley Pearse and Liz Harris.

Synopsis

Fool's Gold by Zana Bell

Love - is it worth its weight in gold? It's 1866 and the gold rush is on. Left to fend for herself in the wilds of New Zealand's west coast, Lady Guinevere Stanhope is determined to do whatever it takes to rescue her ancestral home and restore her father's good name. Forced out of his native Ireland, Quinn O'Donnell dreams of striking gold. His fiercely held prejudices make him loath to help any English person, let alone a lady as haughty and obstinate as Guinevere. But when a flash flood hits, Quinn is compelled to rescue her, and their paths become entwined in this uncharted new world. Though a most inconvenient attraction forms between them, both remain determined to pursue their dreams, whatever the cost. Will they realise in time that all that glitters is not gold?

About the Author

Zana Bell grew up in Harare, Zimbabwe and studied English Literature at the University of Cape Town. After travelling for several years doing a wide range of jobs, she immigrated to New Zealand where she now lives with her family and cats in a small harbourside community.

She began writing, just for the fun of seeing whether she could actually complete a novel and immediately became hooked. Research is her primary love and writing gives her an excellent excuse to be obsessive or just plain nosey. She enjoys writing in a variety of genres but has a particular fondness for all things historical.
