Takes readers to the dawn of the 19th century and into the lives of three women arrested and sent into suffering and slavery in Australia and Tanzania, who overcame their fates unlike any other women in the world at the time. This is the story of Agnes McMillan, whose defiance and resilience carried her to a far more dramatic rebellion; Ludlow Tedder, forced to choose just one of her four children to accompany her to the other side of the world; and Bridget Mulligan, who gave birth to a line of powerful women stretching to the present day.
