This story of courage, pride, and determination begins with the hardship of a six-month voyage with the First Fleet, and her discovery of love amidst the terror of crime and punishment. Finding love only to lose it, she must hack out a home in the unfriendly foreign soil of Australia, but finds peace with a fellow convict who helps her to build a home and family.
