Publisher's Summary

Set in Australia in the 1840s, A Fringe of Leaves combines dramatic action with a finely distilled moral vision.  

Returning home to England from Van Diemen's Land, the Bristol Maid is shipwrecked on the Queensland coast and Mrs Roxburgh is taken prisoner by a tribe of Australian Aboriginals, along with the rest of the passengers and crew.  

In the course of her escape, she is torn by conflicting loyalties - to her dead husband, to her rescuer, to her own and to her adoptive class.
