Emma Poldark, cosseted teenage daughter of Port Arthur's commandant, is helplessly in love with the suave doctor, Hugh Chilcott. She spends her days walking her dog, desperately hoping to speak to him. Jack Wainwright, arrested in London for a trivial offence, is transported to Van Diemen's Land. Jack and Emma's lives unexpectedly collide, setting off a series of events that are humorous, poignant and utterly compelling.
