Two young sisters sent far, far from home...
When tragedy deprives little Dulcie Taylor and her sister May of
their parents, they are sent first to an orphanage and then shipped
off to begin a new life in Australia. But the 'better life' the
sisters are promised in this new and exciting country turns out to

It seems everyone who ever stood up for them, who ever said
'trust me', somehow betrays that trust: their parents, teachers and
the sisters at the convent. But then Dulcie meets Ross, another
orphanage survivor, and finds a kindred spirit. Can Dulcie ever get
over the pain of the past and learn to trust again? And does she
have the strength to fight for her own happiness as well as that of
