Joann Canter’s life had never been easy, but for almost twenty years now—while imprisoned in Australia’s Freemantle Prison for the murder of her husband—it has at least been predictable and structured. When she unexpectedly receives a letter from the High Court of Britain informing her that she has been cleared of the unlawful murder conviction and is to be immediately released from prison, she doesn’t know what to do. Her routine life has been upended and the only guidance she is given is to live one day at a time. Frustrated with that advice, Joann tries to cope in her old ways. She takes matters into her own hands but quickly finds her old habits do not suit her new situation. So, having no prospects for employment in Australia, she sets sail for England, hoping for a new life in her birth country.
