Kerenza isn't sure about leaving her village in Cornwall and taking a ship to Australia, but she can be brave for her dad's sake. Where he sees a farm, she and her Mam see endless bush and flies - millions of them - and hard work from dawn to dusk. It's almost too much to bear, but the Mallee has its own beauty, and family and new-found friends might just make it her home.
