All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full: unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.

Stars sweep and question not. This is enough,
That life and death and joy and woe abide;
And cause and sequence, and the course of Time;
And Being's ceaseless tide
Which, ever changing, runs, linked like a river . .

Edward Arnold: The Light of Asia
First words
High in the Australian Alps a little stream, just born, moves invisibly beneath the snow, or can be glimpsed through a blue-shadowed hole between the melting snow-bridges.

Book description
A tale of romance and adventure, this is the story of Philadelphia Gordon, orphaned at 13 and sent to live on the banks of the Murray River in Australia with her aunt and uncle.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Philadelphia Gordon is an artist, a riverboat skipper, a beautiful and independent woman. Orphaned by a shipwreck, Philadelphia grows up on the banks of her beloved Murray River, seemingly destined for a conventional life. But tragedy leads her first to a successful career as a painter, then to marriage to the dashing captain of the paddle-steamer that bears her name. This epic novel, set against the panoramic countryside and winding rivers of Australia, is her story, as powerful and unforgettable as its heroine.
