As the story unfolds the characters develop enabling us to recognise their strengths and weaknesses. It is about a family who are shaped by great tragedy, cruel hardship, intrigue and Victorian snobbery. Martha Moon's husband and his brother are Master Mariners who loose their lives at sea leaving their wives to provide for their children. When Martha's only son then dies tragically of a deadly disease in Australia, her daughters are left to make the most of their poverty with dignity and the 'hope' of a lost legacy. Matilda, Martha's eldest daughter struggles to bring up nine children with little help from her husband and it is then left to Minnie, her eldest daughter to try to regain lost ground. A feisty character, Minnie is ready to uphold the poor and needy and the rights of both women and children. She surprises everyone by marrying against her principles and looses her home twice to fire, at the same time loosing any hope of motherhood or personal fulfilment; but inspired by her grandmother, she keeps her faith in God and lives to be over a hundred years old.

About the Author:

I am a full time Registered Nurse and mother of three young adults. My husband is a University Teaching Technical Support Worker and I have always wanted to write a book. It is only now that I feel I have enough material to write about, but unfortunately I don't always have enough time to get it down on paper. I enjoyed writing this book. It was an obsession much to the annoyance of my family and I long to go on writing more in the future. My interests are varied. I have developed an interest in history in the last few years, but have always loved country walks and music.
