Rebecca Brynabout this book: Concluding the story of Jem and Ella. While Jem comes to terms with life in a penal station on Van Diemen's Land's convict peninsula, Ella is forced into marriage to a pardoned convict to save the life of her young son, who is dying of neglect in a convict nursery. Although now only a few miles from Jem, her new husband, Tom, is addicted by the lure of gold in the new goldfields that are opening up across the Blue Mountains of Australia, and is intent on taking his new family there. Freed by marriage from the penal system, she and Tom embark on a perilous journey on foot, in winter, braving attacks by bush rangers, and in the dubious company of Jack, a horse thief.
Letters from Ella are what keep Jem going, and upon learning she's in Australia with his son, and married, he is heartbroken but determines to escape at any cost to ensure she is happy. Does he hope to win her back, or will he be content to let her live her life without him? Will his own fondness for Bridget, a woman he met on board ship, colour his decision? Can he and Ella make new lives without one another?
