Publisher's Summary

By the 1700s, the Aborigine had lived in harmony with the land in Australia for 60,000 years. But now ghost-ships are arriving, and their very existence is threatened by a terrifying white invasion. When Jonathan Cadwallader leaves Cornwall to sail on the Endeavour, he is forced to abandon his sweetheart, Susan Penhalligan. But an act of brutality will reunite them in the raw and unforgiving penal colony of New South Wales. Billy Penhalligan has survived transportation and clings to the promise of a new beginning. But there will be more suffering before he or his fellow convicts can regard Australia as home...

for those who love historical fiction.

for those who love historical fiction this is a must read/listen.

starting in 1763 and finishing in 1793 in this first part of a trilogy. set in cornwell, tahiti and austrailia this book covers the lives of jonathon, susan and her brother billy. a story of love, betrayal, and the hard work it tales to survive in the making of a new colony. highly recommended.

peter wickham did and excellant job in performing this book, the accents and male and female voices.
