Gwendoline Ewinsabout this book: This book was soooo easy to write until three-quarters of the way through when stringing together more than a couple of words became almost impossible. But I always liked the hero and heroine and the possibility of a heartbroken botanist and a destitute teacher coming together on the deck of a sailing ship in 1825. I have them watch helplessly as mayhem breaks out below them on a spectacular lagoon. A man is desperate to flee but overtaken by pursuers and bludgeoned to death.
The ship makes a hurried departure so Amelia Yorke cannot meet the man she has never met but agreed to marry. Guy Richmond thanks Francesca for her betrayal because without it he would never have prepared for the worst.
Amelia and Guy apparently have little in common but come to enjoy discussions with one another as they sail back to Sydneytown. The days and nights are long but to their disappointment they shorten dramatically as Botany Bay looms.
