In 1863 the authorities send Irish orphans Ismay and Mara to Australia against their will. Worse, on arrival they're separated from one another. While Ismay is forced to take a job as a maid miles away in the country, Mara must stay in the care of the Catholic mission.

Desperate to be reunited, Ismay waits her moment then flees her employers to look for her sister but she runs into danger out in the bush. She is saved by Malachi Firth, but although he's attracted to her, he doesn't want to be encumbered with a wife.

In addition, Mara has also run away and though she finds shelter it is in a place with its own perils.

Meanwhile, their elder sister Keara has not forgotten them. However, she has had her own struggles to face and by the time she reaches Melbourne she finds that the trail is cold.

Danger continues to threaten all three sisters as their desperate search takes them from one side of Australia to the other. Will they find one another again or will their old enemies triumph?

From the Author:
I've thoroughly enjoyed writing the story of the three Irish Sisters. This book takes us from Ireland to Lancashire, and to both Western Australia and Victoria (and its capital Melbourne). The early days of settling a country are so interesting and I really admire the people who laid the foundations of Australia.

I hadn't intended to make Catherine a central figure, but she walked on to the stage and I could do nothing but add her story to that of Mara and Ismay. Characters have minds of their own sometimes! And as it turned out, she was important in my two heroines' lives.

I had another surprise from this book. In Chapter 1 we meet the mother of the hero, Malachi Firth. Hannah Firth was also a strong character, and although she had no part to play in this book, I couldn't get her out of my mind and in the end had to tell her story in another book. So there will be a linked book, Threepenny Dreams, this time set in Lancashire.
