Summary
Wanted: companion to escort a young, orphaned child to Australia. All expenses as well as passage covered. Interested parties to apply without delay to 32 Williams Street, Belgravia. England, 1941 Rose Hamilton is on the train to London Paddington for a twenty-fifth birthday celebration, when she sees a situation vacant in a discarded newspaper. A year ago Rose would have thought nothing of it, but that was before her unjust dismissal from the Air Force, exile to a sleepy Devon village, and a growing and upsetting distance between her and her fiance Xander. Before she knows what she's doing, Rose is walking down Williams Street and into the life of a little boy named Walter. She agrees to chaperone him across the world, having no idea of the secrets, lies and heartbreak awaiting them at the plantation. But when the time comes for Rose to leave the wild Australian outback, will she be able to do it?
