Set in early 19th-century England, this is a skilful portrayal of a world in which the classes are harshly divided and poverty is commonplace. Tamar Allam lives an honest but difficult life taking care of her younger brother, 14-year-old Benjie. When he is unjustly accused of a serious crime and sentenced to 30 years in an Australian penal colony, Tamar is determined to find him, whatever the cost, and bring him back to the only home he has ever known. As she confronts the numerous dangers facing a young and pretty woman on such a harrowing journey, Tamar's love and loyalty to her brother drives her forward. With help from unexpected quarters, Tamar finds a berth on a boat to Australia, convinced that she will finally find Benjie. But on her arrival, her troubles only increase as she discovers that he could be anywhere within this large, cruel land, and the enormity of her task almost destroys her. Meg Hutchinson is a popular writer with several other novels in print, including Child of Sin and A Promise Given. This story continues her theme of love lost and found in a way that is certain to capture your imagination. It is a book that will find you cheering for Tamar's tenacity while weeping for life's cruelties, but, most of all, it will keep you utterly absorbed. (Kirkus UK)
