A powerful historical novel exploring themes of racism, classism and gender expectations present in a growing nation.
When Biddy arrives in Melbourne from Ireland in 1850, she knows exactly what she's going to do - find her rebellious big brother, Ewen. Her plans are derailed when he's not there to meet her and she's forced into a situation that is nothing like she expected. Faced with challenges and chased by luck, bad and good, Biddy must find a strength within herself to build a new life - and to find her missing brother.
