Publisher's Summary

A married woman with five children and a comfortable home, Mary-Ann Macgregor’s life is full of quiet contentment. It feels like an age since, at just 17, she married Ewan Macgregor, a Scottish blacksmith, for whom she felt affection but not love. But when her son, Davey, befriends a new arrival to the village – Janet, who is poor but prepossessing – he sets in motion a chain of events that leads to disaster.

Harshly punished for a minor crime, Ewan and Davey are sentenced to exile in Australia. Mary-Ann is determined to keep her family together whatever the cost – but her past is catching up with her, and soon her children will know the secret she has tried so hard to keep…
