Set in Australia in the 1840s, A FRINGE OF LEAVES combines dramatic action with a finely distilled moral vision. Returning home to England from Van Diemen's land, the Bristol Maid is shipwrecked on the Queensland coast and Mrs Roxburgh is taken prisoner by a tribe of aborigines, along with the rest of the passengers and crew. In the course of her escape, she is torn by conflicting loyalties - to her dead husband, to her rescuer, to her own and to her adoptive class.Of a damper humour, Spurgeon failed to kindle, but submitted his neck to the virtues of saltwater. ... not only the physical rigours of what was no longer a doomed voyage, but also the moral judgment of those who might ferret over his features.
