AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Fleeing the horrors of Dickensian England and debts she cannot pay, Rosanna steals passage aboard a ship from a desperate young mother and her child. But all hope of a better life is snuffed out when the ship runs aground on Matron Island, a remote quarantine station off the coast of Tasmania.

'Trapped, Rosanna searches for a way out, discovering hidden chambers and a bizarre photography studio deep within the bowls of the station. Each step brings Rosanna closer to the truth and the creatures that await her in the dark . . . ' (Publication summary)
