AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Martha Winstanley is filled with foreboding as she sets sail from the Liverpool Docks on the Samuel Plimsoll in 1880. All alone, and at the age of 12 she is being sent away to live with an Aunt in Australia. The story reflects the times. Martha learns to be self-sufficient and to cope with the extraordinary events that surround her. Martha Winstanley is pictured on the front of the book and is in fact [the author's] great great grandmother.'
