Summary
"When Bridget Crack arrives in the colony, she is just grateful to be on dry land. But finding the life of an indentured domestic servant intolerable, she pushes back and is punished for her insubordination - sent from one place to another, each significantly worse than the last. She runs from there and finds herself imprisoned by the impenetrable Tasmanian wilderness. What she finds there - what finds her - is Matt Sheedy, a man on the run, who saves her from certain death. Her precarious existence among volatile and murderous bushrangers is a different kind of hell and, surrounded by roaring rivers and towering columns of rock, hunted by soldiers and at the mercy of killers, Bridget finds herself in an impossible situation."--Back cover
