I really enjoyed this book. It is about a young girl's abuse in the Australian Outback. Jessica's own mother mistreats her so that her other daughter can marry a wealthy station owner. Jessica overcomes so much in her young life. I love the way she fights her battles. She also makes friends with an aboriginal woman which would have been frowned upon in that era (1910+) and helps her get back her own children from the government. Another great read from one of my favourite authors
