About "Suzannah's Gold"
Suzannah Casey was just twelve years old when she was transported to the Australian colony from Ireland. Though devastated by her circumstances she was grateful to be given an opportunity, through Caroline Chisholm's scheme for young girls, to start a new life on the Goulburn Plains with ex-convict, George Oakes. However, Suzannah could never have envisaged the trauma and loss that lay ahead of her. She must find the faith and courage to overcome abuse, disappointment, abandonment, illness, religious bigotry and finally her own yearnings in order to discover what is more precious than gold.
