The Diary of Elizabeth Harvey, Sydney 1790. Lizzie Harvey, a convict transported to Sydney Cove, is starving and overworked. She has to fetch the water, mend clothes, serve her Master, care for his china-doll daughter and tiptoe around his moody soldier son. She can barely find time to dream about the way things used to be, let alone write in her diary. But write she must. It is her only hope of reaching out to the home she has left behind, all those thousands of miles away across the sea.
