Sentenced to life imprisonment in Van Diemen’s Land for a crime he didn’t commit, Daniel Quinn survives the perilous sea voyage and is gaoled in Port Arthur Prison. After many years he is released to work for a wealthy landowner who is building a brewery. He falls in love with the beautiful young daughter of his master, but what chance does he have with her? He is a convict, while she can have her pick of many rich men who want to marry her. Fortune has a way of playing the cards for those who deserve it. Despite many trials and setbacks, it appears that these two young people are destined to be together.
