Summary

This story is based on historical events that have or may have occurred in Berrima during a year in a young girl's life. Some events have been fictionalized and others have been based on actual incidents. Most surnames and some information used in this story have been taken from the Berrima cemetery transcripts for the period of 1849 to 1850. Many buildings and places in the story are still to be found in and around Berrima. The life we lead today is very different to life in 1849, as illustrated in this story. Historical changes made since 1788, nation-wide and world-wide, have shaped Australia. Some of these changes are. Our evolving language derives from words that have changed, been introduced, dropped from usage or continue to be introduced. Common sayings have gone out of fashion just as new sayings are used now. Manners and speech were important and indicated the perceived background and position of a person in society. This is not as evident today.
