The story of a young indigenous girl Birrung who befriends orphaned Barney and his friend Elsie. Birrung is living with Mr Johnson — chaplain to the Australian colony in 1790 — and his family. Generous in spirit, the Johnson family also take in Barney and Elsie who have only just been surviving on their meagre daily rations.

Despite living with the Johnsons, Birrung's connection to her people remains strong and when Mr and Mrs Johnson see how Barney's feeling for Birrung are growing, they gently explain that his friendship with a 'native' girl and all that she taught him about her language and lore must remain a secret — forever.

The first in a series from Jackie French that explores our secret history.
