From a much-loved author, a gripping story about two children sent to an Australian orphanage in the fifties. All her life, people have told little Dulcie Taylor they'll look after her and her sister May. And every time, her trust has been betrayed. Yet when they are given a new start in a young and exciting country, she really believes it will be a fresh chance for them both. But the new life the sisters hoped for turns out to be a vicious illusion. Then Dulcie meets Ross, another orphanage survivor, and finds a kindred spirit - but the pain of the past is always there, and for Dulcie and May it will be a hard struggle to learn to trust again. Unloved, unwanted, does Dulcie have enough strength and spirit to fight for the happiness she deserves, and protect her younger sister?
