In "Storms over Hawking Manor" we meet many of the characters of "Secrets of Hawking Manor once more. In this novel dealing with events taking place a decade after "Secrets of Hawking Manor" their lovers and enemies of years gone by come back to haunt them in struggles that could spell doom for the Carstairs clan, a noble English family. Henry and Benjamin Carstairs have testified against Eugene Fairham. Henry's former friend and fellow Dragoon who shot and killed their young friend, Christopher, stands trial before a ruthless judge. Condemned to hang, Eugene only finds mercy when Henry and Benjamin intercede for him at the last moment. While he escapes the hangman, he is banished to the penal colony of Australia and is forever forbidden to return to the land of his birth. On the way on board the Fortune Four Eugene manages to deceive another traveler. He takes his identity and reports Eugene Fairham to have gone overboard. The Carstairs learn that he has drowned in the vast Indian Ocean, but in reality he is on the way to wed the woman, a landowner in the Swan River Colony, the man he had deceived had promised to marry in an arranged marriage. Will the final words of the judge to him, "Eugene Fairham should you ever set foot on England's fair soil again, henceforth know you this, you shall receive mercy no more," deter Eugene from plotting revenge on the Carstairs? Meanwhile back in England, the Carstairs face many challenges and dangers from noblemen as well as gangsters who are bent to visit revenge, robbery and murder on them. Desperate men plan to kidnap Jane, the young girl adopted by the Carstairs and her young brother. Not only are Benjamin and Henry Carstairs' skills and bravery tested, but Meredith and Samuel, their parents' lives are threatened as well. After many of the storms assailing the Carstairs have passed, they celebrate the marriage of Clarissa and also Benjamin's betrothal to Rebecca, Lady Lydia's beautiful daughter. They are convinced they have weathered all storms, but unknown to them Eugene had quietly returned to his ancestral home.
