Samantha, a seamstress, stows away on a ship bound for Australia, disguised as a boy. Discovered by the ship's doctor, she becomes his assistant but rapidly finds that her growing feelings for Doctor John mean that her disguise is a hindrance, rather than a help. When the feisty Estelle McEwan enters the scene, things become even more complicated for Sam. "A very good story," (5-star review).
