Rebecca Brynabout this book: Continuing the fate of Jem and Ella, star-crossed lovers. Jem has been sentenced to transportation for life and finds himself on a convict ship bound for Van Diemen's Land. Meanwhile, Ella, thrown back on Harry's mercy and desperate to raise the fare to follow Jem, has sold her body and is pregnant. Is the child Harry's? He believes it is, but Harry's mother has good reason to rid herself of Ella. Falsely accused of theft by her mother-in-law, Ella finds herself thrown into jail awaiting transportation just as Jem is trying to escape to get home to England and the girl he loves. Will their paths cross or is their love not meant to be?
Ella's quest to follow her common-law husband means she must leave behind her midsummer baby with Harry, but Jem's baby son, William, is sent with her into a desperate plight. Tragedy strikes on her voyage, but she finds love and friendship where she least expects it.
