Set in the Australian penal settlement of Norfolk Island in the 1840's, this historical novel is based on the historical reality of the Irish famine, the 19(th) century Young Ireland movement and the notoriety of one of Australia's worst penal settlements.

Elise Cartwright, the daughter of the superintendant of agriculture at the settlement is strangely drawn to an Irish convict who called her by name, requesting her help. Who is he? How does he know my name? What does he want of me? These questions preoccupy Elisa as she and her family try to make a home in the settlement, which is for them as much as for the convicts, a place of exile, a place of punishment. Slowly, she learns who 'her convict' is, as her family's fate becomes ever more tightly enmeshed with his.
