    Separated from all that she loves...Cassandra Blake has raised her three sisters. The girls are the pride of their impractical father Zachariah, and not in a hurry to marry. Then the American Civil War cuts off supplies of cotton to Lancashire and the mills fall silent. There is a stark choice: stay and risk starvation or begin again elsewhere. Then an old feud tears the family apart. Cassandra is kidnapped and her sisters are forced to sail with a group of desperate cotton lasses to the Swan River Colony. Penniless and alone, Cassandra is determined to find them again - but when he is offered a way, there is a painful price to pay.
