Not the Same Sky
A NoveleBook - 2013
By 1848 famine has ravaged Ireland. A shortage of female labour in Australia offers a kind of solution and so, over the following two years, London ships more than 4000 Irish girls to the new colony. This book tells the story of Honora, Julia, Bridget and Anne, observing them on the voyage and following them as they become women of Australia.
