This third book of the series centers on the trader, Bram's, Aunt Maura and begins at her employment in service in England. There is a typhus epidemic in Ireland where the Deagan Family are affected and three children are orphaned. Maura is contacted as nearest next-of-kin to decide on the children's future.
This series is very well written and interesting making it impossible to put down. No dead spots here. The descriptions of travel from Ireland to Australia during the 198th century are well documented. What an adventure!
I definitely want to continue reading this series and will recommend to fellow readers of historical fiction. Great plot. Interesting characters. Fascinating subject matter.
