“High adventure is the keynote and love the theme of this story of a fateful journey to Western Australia in 1831… The Swan River Settlement was in its infancy when the London Lass set sail with its cargo of emigrants to this strange new world.  Proud or humble, adventurous or ambitious, those who rubbed shoulders in this perilous journey were so diverse that their passions and frustrations were bound to end in more than one human tragedy.  Eleanor Armitage with her blonde loveliness; Simon Lee Challinor, aristocrat turned rover of the seven seas; the tavern girl. Penelope, strong-willed and hot-blooded, exquisite in her dark grace; Martha Gubby of the generous heart and Cockney wit; Squint-eye Lush, the captain, whose suave geniality hides the ruthlessness of a cut-throat; it is a colourful gallery, implicit with the drama of conflicting personalities – some of whom are destined “forever to remain” in the new.”
