From the bestselling author of Maralinga.
In 1788, Thomas Kendall, a naive nineteen-year-old sentenced to transportation for burglary, finds himself bound for Sydney Town in the penal colony of New South Wales. Discarding allegiance to the country that has disowned him, Thomas, an honest man at heart, seizes a second chance and begins a new life in the wild and lawless land beneath the Southern Cross.
Thomas Kendall fathers a dynasty that will last beyond 200 years. His descendants play their part in the forging of a nation, but internal strife and the privileges of wealth see an irreparable rift in the family. Driven by passion, greed and prejudice, this rift will echo through generations. It is only when a young man reaches far into the past and rights grievous wrong that the Kendall family can reclaim its honour.
