Rebecca Oakes is just thirteen when her mother passes away, and she is left to care for her ageing father. However, it is not only family that stands in the way of Rebecca's dream. She will have to fight the Australian society – a society where it is difficult for a woman to get an education, where women can't own property, have no vote and no voice.
Will she be thwarted by a man who is determined to stand in her way? Set in the early colonial days of New South Wales and based on real characters in the mid 1800s. Rebecca's Dream continues the story from Suzannah's Gold.
