Even the most rural village in Britain had a road of sorts, a village well and a church. In this new colony there was only sand, scrub and forest. But little Becky Lees had lived there since babyhood. She knew no other life.
Left alone in the wild after her father’s death, Becky is rescued by Aboriginal people and travels with them for some months, before being taken in by a young widow struggling to raise her little sons on a remote farm.
Then teenage Becky finds a lasting love. But life is never a fairy tale, and fate has much more trauma in store for her before she can finally find happiness.
