CeCe D'Apliese has always felt like an outcast. But following the deal of her father - an elusive billionaire who adopted CeCe and her sisters from around the globe - she finds herself more alone than ever. With nothing left to lose, CeCe gathers the courage to explore the mystery of her origins. the only clues she holds are a black-and-white photograph and the name of a female pioneer who once lived in Australia.
One hundred years earlier, Kitty McBride, a Scottish clergyman's daughter, abandons her conservative upbringing to travel to Adelaide. Her ticket to a new land brings the adventure she dreamed of and a love beyond what she had ever imagined.
When CeCe herself finally reaches the searing heat and dusty plains of Australia, she is drawn to the energy of the area and the ancient culture of the Aboriginal people. As she comes closer to discovering the truth of her ancestry CeCe begins to believe that this untamed, vast continent could offer her something she never though possible: a sense of belonging.
