In 1853, in Hobart Town, Van Diemen’s Land (later known as Tasmania), Isabel Saxby is a successful business woman with independent means, due in part to an anonymous benefactor. Unmarried, Isabel falls in love with Barnaby Micklejohn, a widower assigned from England to work as an official in the colonial government. While their romance flourishes, Isabel carefully avoids divulging her past. She receives a letter from her mother begging her to return to Worcester in England to visit her dying father, so she postpones all arrangements for her future with Barnaby. But aboard the renowned ship SS Great Britain bound for Liverpool, Isabel’s extraordinary past is revealed, yet at what cost to her future with Barnaby?
