Growing up in Victorian England, 14-year-old Kit Lovell has not had an easy childhood. She never knew her father - a sea captain who went down with his ship, the Invincible, before she was born. And now her strict and protective mother, having relied on the charity of her sister, has made the radical decision to sail with Katherine to the new colony of Australia on the strength of an arranged marriage to a lighthouse keeper on the lonely and isolated Kangaroo Island. But the journey to that faraway land - with its melting pot of passengers and crew, and the terrible events that take place - will shape their lives forever. A powerful and beautifully wrought work of historic fiction with fascinating characters and dramatic action that propels us through this fascinating coming-of-age journey.
