Late 1829. Jeweller Adam Green has taken a shine to his new employee, transported convict Sarah Morgan. His wife Esther grows more and more jealous and eventually - after several items have mysteriously disappeared from the house - sends Sarah back to the Parramatta Women's Facto...ry. However, the strange occurrences continue. Esther begins to doubt her own sanity and flees Australia for England. On the way, she drowns, leaving the way clear for Adam and Sarah's love to blossom. Sarah fears that Rachel is responsible; upon visiting a medium, Rachel appears and says she will never abandon her friends. The couple marry, but then Adam is framed and convicted of handling stolen goods. While he serves his time, his friend Jared Gellar takes over the business - and tries to take over Sarah, too, until the strange hauntings start again. Meanwhile, the long-dreaded blackmail letter arrives from Bella Jackson. The girls vainly try to contact Rachel but it is only when Jared and Sarah have a violent fight that she reappears ...BOOKS 3 & 4 will deal with Harriet and Friday's stories. Harriet starts working for a tattooist and Friday continues to work as a prostitute. The two also feature more heavily in the first two books than these blurbs would suggest.
