Summary
Caroline and Grace Bell, two beautiful orphan sisters eager to begin their lives in a new land, journey to post-war England from Australia. What happens to these young women - seduction and abandonment, marriage and widowhood, love and betrayal - becomes as moving and wonderful and yet as predestined as the transits of the planets themselves.
