In 1863, Irish orphans Ismay and Mara are sent to Australia against their will by the authorities. Even worse, they’re separated on arrival. While Ismay is forced to take a job as a maid in the country, Mara must stay in the care of the Catholic mission.
Desperate to be reunited with her sister, Ismay flees. But there is danger in the bush – and when she finds a saviour, he brings with him new problems.
Mara too has run away – and though she finds shelter, it is in a place with its own perils.
Meanwhile their elder sister Keara is looking for them. But the trail is growing cold. Will they find each other again or will their old enemies triumph?
