This is an auction for BEHIND THE SUN by Deborah Challinor.

Amazon.com reviews:

"Four women on a perilous journey to a new world, can rely only on their wits to survive ... and each other Irreverent and streetwise prostitute Friday Woolfe is in London's notorious Newgate gaol, awaiting transportation. there, she meets three other girls: intelligent and opportunistic thief, Sarah Morgan, naive young Rachel Winter, and reliable and capable seamstress, Harriet Clarke. On the voyage to New South Wales their friendship becomes an unbreakable bond - but there are others on board who will change their lives forever. Friday makes an implacable enemy of Bella Jackson, a vicious woman whose power seems undiminished by her arrest and transportation, while Harriet is taken under the wing of an idealistic doctor, James Downey. Rachel catches the eye of a sinister passenger with more than honour on his mind. When they finally arrive on the other side of the world, they are confined to the grim and overcrowded Parramatta Female Factory. But worse is to come as the threat of separation looms. In the land behind the sun, the only thing they have is each other ..."

"FIVE STARS!!! Inspired by the lives of Deborah Challinor's ancestors, Behind the Sun is the first instalment of a historical fiction series featuring four convict women transported from England to New South Wales in the late 1820s. With strong characterisation, Behind the Sun is a fascinating exploration of women's history in Australia and an enjoyable read. I am looking forward to reading more about the women's adventures in SydneyTown.
