When Charlotte and Henry decide to leave the bleak circumstances under which they are living in England to set out for a new life in Australia, they have no idea what they will be facing.  Henry, who came to England from India as a child, is eager for the move, but Charlotte, an English-born woman, goes reluctantly.  Among the major issues faced in the book are:  what constitutes “home?” and, how much of oneself should be sacrificed for the good of the family.  A book that will have you searching your soul, wondering what you would do in their situation.
