Jacky Faber, rich from her exploits diving for Spanish gold, has
purchased the Lorelei Lee to carry passengers across the Atlantic.
Believing she has been absolved of past sins against the Crown, Jacky
docks in London to take on her crew, but is instead arrested and
sentenced to life in the newly formed penal colony in Australia.
To add insult to injury, the Lorelei Lee is confiscated to carry Jacky and more than 200 female convicts to populate New South Wales. Not one to give in to self pity, Jacky rallies her sisters to "better" their position--resulting in wild escapades, brushes with danger, and much hilarity. Will Jacky find herself a founding mother of New South Wales, Australia? Not if she has anything to do about it!
