Two lost souls end up together at a glittering soirée off the coast of Australia’s breathtaking Sydney Harbour, where long-forgotten secrets and everyday seductions collide.
Way was educated in the river city of Brisbane, Australia.
In her youth, Way was a well-known pianist, teacher, vocal coach and accompanist. She has engaged in writing since 1970. Her numerous books set in her native Australia feature extended and lyrical descriptions of her country’s various landscapes and customs. The heroine of a typical Way romance is described as extraordinarily beautiful, feminine and highly strung. Her heroes, often in contrast to her heroines, are strikingly self-assured, and the reader is never in doubt about where his affections lie. Often a friend of the family or someone who initially takes a fatherly interest in the heroine, Way’s heroes exert considerable control over her female characters.
Way’s romances have been described as traditional and even old-fashioned in their depiction of relationships as “all-intensive, life or death” matters in which the very survival of the characters seems to depend on their successful romantic attachment. Further, particularly for her heroines, the romantic relationship appears to be the sole focus in the lives of Way’s characters.
Most of Way’s novels are set in her homeland of Australia.

Way's interests remain with the arts. She still plays the piano seriously. She is still addicted to collecting antiques and paintings and browsing through galleries. Her house is full of books, spectacular plants, Chinese screens and pots. Way is devoted to her garden and spends much time directing the design and digging and providing cold drinks and chocolates.
