William is used to looking after the street kids in England, but when transported as a convict expectations change. Mary has been on the streets as long as she can remember as well and expects to have to fight for survival in Australia. She is surprised when she meets up with William, who she hasn't seen for 10 years. She is more surprised when he proposes marriage. But their journey through convict and family life is anything but happily ever after. Through grief, crisis after crisis, triumphs, friendships, love and faith they grow in the harsh new country. A fictional story based on true events and characters that are not only believable, but based on true convicts and settlers.
