Women are betrothed to strangers and shipped away from their struggling village homes. After saying her vows in Dalmatia, Emmalina will sail to New Zealand and join Johan Turk on the northern gumfields, where men and women slave over miry ground to dig up remnants of the valuable kauri gum resin. Emmalina's unwelcome marriage to Johan becomes a battle between her desire for distance and his determination to make the marriage work.
