Description


Loyalties are torn in 19th-century Australia… New South Wales, 1839 Jack Bradbury has grown up around the local Mission station and formed a deep and growing relationship with his childhood friend, Lowanna. But his parents are determined that Jack will take his rightful place in the middle-class commercial society into which he was born and seek a higher match for him. Jack decides to follow a career in the legal profession and finds a job with a prominent barrister in Sydney. Almost before he realises what is happening Jack is engaged to be married to his employer’s daughter, and assured of a prosperous future in partnership with his father-in-law. Then trouble breaks out in the local Aboriginal community, and Lowanna reappears in his life, seeking his assistance. Torn between two lifestyles, two loves, and two widely contrasting futures, Jack must make an agonising and irrevocable life choice. He has one foot in each of two disparate and bitterly divided communities — which will he opt to become a member of?
