In 1868, after their father is wrongfully convicted and deported on the last prison ship to Australia, twelve-year-old Patrick and the rest of the McWaid family determine to stay together and follow him to the far-off continent.

Excerpt/First Sentence(s):
"Michael! We're going to be late if you don't stay by me."

Twelve-year-old Patrick McWaid put his hands on his hips and waited yet again for his younger brother to catch up. They had come this way hundreds of times before, though Dublin's Bull Alley Market, and it was the quickest way from the flat where they lived to their father's newspaper office on the other side of the River Liffey. But Patrick's little brother, Michael, was dawdling as usual.
