Ikey Solomon is very successful indeed, in the art of thieving. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from 19th century London to Van Diemens Land. In the backstreets and dives of Hobart Town, Mary learns the art of brewing and builds The Potato Factory, where she plans a new future. But her ambitions are threatened by Ikey's wife, Hannah, her old enemy. The two women raise their separate families. As each woman sets out to destroy the other, the families are brought to the edge of disaster.


Following on from the Potato Factory...Brutally Kidnapped And Separated In Childhood, Tommo And Hawk Are Reunited At The Age Of Fifteen In Hobart Town. Together, They Escape Their Troubled Pasts And Set Off On A Journey Into Manhood. From Whale Hunting In The Pacific To The Maori Wars Of New Zealand, From The Rocks In Sydney To The Miners' Riots At The Goldfields, Tommo And Hawk Must Learn Each Other's Strengths And Weaknesses In Order To Survive.
