Inspired by the real life of a remarkable woman who lived in the late eighteenth century, this novel illustrates the resilience, courage and the mystery of human desire.

Shortly after her marriage to the arrogant and hot-headed soldier John Macarthur, Elizabeth realises she has made a terrible mistake. Forced to travel with him to New South Wales, she discovers that Sydney Town is a brutal, dusty place of makeshift shelters, failing crops, scheming and rumours. Raised since childhood to fold herself up small, Elizabeth has to secure a strength she never imagined possible in order to survive this vast new landscape.
