AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Mrs Finnegan and her seven children have to leave Ireland and join Mr Finnegan in Australia. They board a ship which doesn't look as if it can move from the harbour and the Finnegans are nervous it is the year after the Titanic sank, after all. Inspired by a true story of one Irish family's migration to Australia in 1913. The Finnegan children are confident and prepared to sail around the world, but there are some adventures that could shake anyone's faith.
