Young American backpacker, Chase Miller, arrives in Far North Queensland seeking work and adventure. Glen Eira cattle station takes him on as a station hand despite his lack of experience. But he is less interested in spending time with the ringers than talking with the station’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 – her life in New York, her arrival in Australia and her early days as a governess in the outback. The story of ‘the American governess’ unfolds through her memories.

As Chase listens to Nellie’s version of the story, he comes to realise that he too might never leave the outback.

The American Governess is another intriguing tale of family connections, mysteries, heritage and culture, from the author of Ella’s Secret Family Recipes and The Lornesleigh Legacy.
