Full description

Beautiful, vulnerable Phoebe Raye pursues a vendetta despite her father's warnings and her yearning for love and fulfilment.

Leaving post-War and Depression-era Sydney, Australia, Phoebe travels via Istanbul to Vienna, Austria, and enters a cultured and complex society fraught with political tension and besieged by a malignant foreign aggressor.

Witness to the unbridled hatred unleashed by the Anschluss as her own situation turns perilous, how will Phoebe resolve her mother's death by violence unavenged?

A poignant account of individual predicament amidst social turmoil, By Violence Unavenged is the first volume of In the Hearts of Kings, and epic trilogy exploring the perennial themes of justice and mercy, revenge and forgiveness.
