Rachel Calthorpe, forced to flee her home in Botany Bay in 1890 after witnessing a tragedy involving an aborigine girl and four white men, leaves her family veiled in disgrace. Daisy Entwistle, born 32 years after her grandmother Rachel's death, becomes obsessed with the woman's life and fate.

Blackwell North Amer
With her striking looks and long blonde hair, Daisy Entwistle brings a shudder to the residents of New Sands in Botany Bay. For Daisy is eerily similar in appearance to her grandmother Rachel Calthorpe, who forty years earlier drowned on a ship bound for England. It isn't her death, though, that haunts the community: it is her association with an aboriginal girl, and the vicious assault that left a young man lucky to be alive.
But looks aren't the only thing that Daisy has in common with her grandmother. When Amelia, an aboriginal girl, joins her class at school, Daisy is the only one to befriend her, despite the taunts from the other children. And as their friendship grows, so does Daisy's understanding of a different Australia, along with her determination to discover the truth about her family's hidden past.
