Hester Finch recalls her family's move to coastal South Australia in 1855. The connections the Finches form with passing travelers and with a local Aboriginal boy, Tully, whom Hester's father seeks to educate almost as his own son, will forever alter their fates, testing their loyalty to each other and to their own principles.
