Southern Cross by Terry Coleman takes place in Australia in the early 1800's. From the flap: On a soft October evening in 1802, on the lawn before Government House, eighteen-year-old Susannah King stands watching a French corvette under topsails as it moves slowly into that noblest of harbors, Sydney Cove. In this enchanted and forever-remembered hour, the governor's daughter awaits the returning Post-Captain Nicholas Baudin. He is her first lover and she is to be his last, but the echoes of their encounter will ring with deepening tones through the lives of many others, and through the first turbulent decades of the Australian nation-to-be.
