“These gentlemen want to arrest ye fer the murder o’ Slippery Smith, two nights ago………..”
Rebecca Birchmoor travels from Adelaide to New South Wales in 1875, ready to take up her first permanent post at the Castleford Hill School. Finding herself robbed and stranded half way up the Murray River, she is rescued by a paddle steamer captain’s son, and gives him her heart. As the hangman awaits her Riverman, Rebecca plans his rescue, knowing that the price she might pay for her actions could cost her everything she holds dear.
