FAREWELL TO LANCASHIRE

Synopsis

Cassandra Blake and her sisters are the pride of their father, Zachariah. When the American Civil War cuts off supplies of cotton to Lancashire, the mills fall silent, and an old feud tears the family apart. Cassandra is kidnapped and her sisters are forced to sail with a group of desperate cotton lasses to the Swan River Colony in Fremantle. Penniless and alone, Cassandra is determined to find them again - but when she is offered a way, will she be able to pay the painful price?
