Blurb: Bridget isn’t afraid of where she is going to, she isn’t afraid for herself. She cries for what she is leaving behind. But when famine takes hold of her beloved Ireland she must set sail for Australia or slowly starve in the workhouse. Crossing the seas, she finds the new world can be as cruel as the old. People keep telling her better rein in her wild spirit – or maybe, just maybe, she can find a way to put it to good use…
