The American Governess

The American Governess will be officially released on the 15th June 2019.

Young American backpacker, Chase Miller, arrives in Far North Queensland, Australia, seeking work and adventure. Glen Eira station takes him on despite his lack of experience. But he is less interested in sdpending time with the ringers ( cowboys) than spending time with the stations's cook, Nellie. He is particularly intrigued by the reclusive 'Boss Lady', Miss Becky, who is also American.

Miss Becky disturbed by the young American's presence, finds herself reliving the days of her youth in New York, her arrival in Australia and her early days as a young governess in the outback.  The story of 'the American governess', unfolds through her memories. 


From T.W. Lawless.
