Summary

Van Diemen's Land, 1826. When Bridget Crack flees her cruel master's isolated property to walk back to Hobart Town she has no idea just how far off the road she will go. When Bridget arrived in the colony, she found the life of an indentured domestic servant intolerable, but when she is punished for her insubordination and sent from one place to another, each worse than the last, she realises there are far worse places to be. The worst of all is where she ends up - the 'Interior' where the hard cases are sent - a brutally hard life with a cruel master miles from civilisation. She runs from there and finds herself imprisoned by the impenetrable Tasmanian wilderness. What she finds there is Matt Sheedy, a man on the run, who saves her from certain death. But her precarious existence among volatile and murderous bushrangers is a different kind of hell.
