Summary
Rescued from neglectful foster care by an American champion boxer, Sharyn is taken to live in a party house in Sydney's red light district of Kings Cross. Her absent, elegant mother then abandons her in a convent-orphanage, at age five. By fifteen, discrimination within her family, resentment and clashes over her father's undisclosed identity see the troubled teenager running away to the streets of Kings Cross. Determined to find her father, Sharyn sets out in search of her roots, a quest taking her across the world and eventually to America's Deep South
