A gritty and compelling historic saga of survival set in Victorian-era Ireland, England, Australia and New Zealand. Four strangers’ lives change dramatically when they choose or are forced to leave their homelands for the promise of a better life. But the reality of their new world is harshly different. Their lives become entrapped in a whirlwind of violence, crime and prostitution, illicit romance and betrayal, with disastrous and fatal outcomes. You might think it’s all fiction – but this engrossing drama is based on true-life events …and and becomes hard to put down as it builds to a surprising outcome. The first in a series of historical novels by Australian-born New Zealand writer-broadcaster David Burke-Kennedy.
