Description
Information
Set in Australia in the 1840s, 'A Fringe of Leaves' combines dramatic action with a finely distilled moral vision. Returning home to England from Van Diemen's Land, the "Bristol Maid" is shipwrecked on the Queensland coast and Mrs Roxburgh is taken prisoner by a tribe of aborigines, along with the rest of the passengers and crew. In the course of her escape, she is torn by conflicting loyalties - to her dead husband, to her rescuer, to her own and to her adoptive class.
