CeCe D'Apliese has always felt like an outcast. But following the death of her father--the reclusive billionaire affectionately called Pa Salt by the six daughters he adopted from around the globe--she finds herself more alone than ever. With nothing left to lose, CeCe delves into the mystery of her familial origins. The only clues she holds are a black and white photograph and the name of a female pioneer who once traversed the globe from Scotland to Australia. One hundred years earlier, Kitty McBride, a clergyman's daughter, abandoned her conservative upbringing to serve as the companion to a wealthy woman traveling from Edinburgh to Adelaide. Her ticket to a new land brings the adventure she dreamed of.

Lucinda Riley never disappoints and her research is meticulous. The Australian pearl fishing industry and the appearance of Aboriginal artist, Albert Namatjira 's work add to the fascinating story as Ce-Ce, the Pearl Sister discovers her own personal ties with Australian history.
