Description - Ratwhiskers And Me by Lorraine Marwood

A powerful atmospheric verse novel set in the Victorian goldfields in the 1800s.

Traumatised by a fire in which her family perishes, the narrator poses as a boy on the goldfields. There, Sun Song, a Chinese market gardener is the only one to show any kindness. The narrator flees to the Chinese camp, taking the name Lin. But Ellery, a man with links to Lin's past, is determined to take over all rights on the goldfields, setting in place a dangerous sequence of events. To survive is a test of frienship and loyalty, and a catalyst for Lin to remember her tragic past.
