About the Series: Settlers
In the early 1800s the penal colony of Botany Bay was an unforgiving and harsh place. Isabella O'Shea is transported to New South Wales for wounding a member of the British aristocracy who raped her, so it is understandable that she loathes members of the upper class and the system that punished her; sentenced her to seven years transportation.

Tiger Carstairs is rich, ambitious and English-so is it any wonder she is determined to hate her new master. Tiger dreams of making a new life beyond the aptly named Blue Mountains, so called because of the perpetual haze of blue surrounding them.

Connie Vines Recommended this book
“Well-plotted, all of the characters were individuals with a strong voice. The depth of the story line reminded me of the Thorn Birds--with strong character arcs, which deepen the story. The history of Australia and the Outback enriched the story. It's 1843. Annie, seeking adventure, decides to visit her brother and his wife in Port Philip. Annie has inherited her mother's independent streak--which makes this story, Annie's Choices, a great selection for Ms McGill's readers!”

“Successful Australian Convicts Daughter” Reviewed by Rosemary Morris
I enjoyed Annie’s Choices and the first three books in this series about early settlers in Australia. I liked catching up with members of her family, most of whom arrived on convict ships and thrived.
Educated by a tutor, lived on her parents’ farm in Bathurst until she came to Melbourne in January 1843 to stay with her brother and sister-in-law. Somewhat headstrong, Annie reminds him he is not her guardian and insists on making her own choices, some of which are unwise. Self-doubt and uncertainty about her choices, until she decides to return to the farm where she must decide how to fill her days with a worthwhile enterprise and choose what
she really wants.

“Annie's Life Lessons” Reviewed by Juliet Waldron
“This is Book 4 in The Settlers, a series of historical romances set in Australia. These concern the Carstairs family, now a second generation beyond the original novels in the series. In this one, a young woman, Annie, comes from beyond the Blue Mountains to the bustling town of Port Phillip. She stays with her brother and his wife, already settled there. Annie is almost 18 and certain she’s quite grown-up, so this story concerns her occasionally rocky path to wisdom. She needs to acquire more worldly wisdom, especially about the motives of young suitors, but the most important lessons she learns are about herself. "Annie's Choice" has a host of believable characters. Above all, it is a charming slice of Victorian romance-Australian-style, and an engaging addition to a deservedly popular series.”

“An engaging historical set in Australia.” Reviewed by Susan on May 21, 2020
“Ms. McGill pens an excellent 1800’s historical story located in Australia. There’s a mix of the life and times, a coming of marriage age, incredible landscapes, a murder-mystery, an evolving romantic relationship, and family ties all wrapped in an intriguing, tastefully written gemstone of a story. If you haven’t read any of Ms. McGill’s novels, this is a good one to check out. Her Settlers series are stand-alone books, so you can start reading them in any order…and you’ll end up reading them all.”
