"Populate or Perish" was the mantra after World War II as Australia sought to boost its population through immigration. This gripping story follows the lives of two young sisters as they embark on a journey of hope and opportunity, leaving behind war-torn and debt-ridden England for the promise of a better life in Australia. But as they navigate the challenges of a new country and grapple with the harsh realities of the immigration process, they are forced to confront the tragedies and heartbreak that come with the consequences of their choices. With a backdrop of a world in turmoil and a nation in flux, this novel explores the human cost of political decisions and the resilience of the human spirit in the face of adversity.

Taz Towers was born in Nuneaton. He spent most of his life working in heavy industry and in the entertainment industry before deciding to write a book of fiction based partly on his own life and partly on true events.
