1856, China

In the mulberry groves of the Pearl River Delta, eighteen year old Little Cat carries a terrible secret.  And so, in disguise as a boy in blue trousers, she makes the long and difficult passage to Australia, a faraway land of untold riches where it is said the rivers run with gold.

1857, Australia

Violet Hartley has arrived off the boat from England, fleeing scandal back home.  Like the Chinese immigrants seeking their fortunes on the goldfields, Violet is seduced by the promise of a new frontier.  The she meets Little Cat, a woman who, like her is trying to escape her past.

As their fates inextricably, devastatingly entwine, their story becomes one of freedom, violence, love and vengeance, echoing across the landscapes of two great continents.
