The story follows four families from Scotland, on the ship out and to the NSW colony in 1850’s. Mary does not cope with the changes and losses that occur in the first months in the colony. The other women in the family rely on her and she nearly crumbles. Through accidents, losses, trials, floods, and hard work the families struggle together and forge a strong bond with their new country. Loosely based on the family history of both the author and her husband who both had Scottish Highlander ancestry!
