Set in post-World War-I Australia, Journey to Warudhar is the story of Jessica Brooking, whose idyllic childhood is turned upside-down when her mother undergoes a sudden religious conversion. Love and joy disappears from her household overnight, and when Jessica can bear the toxic atmosphere no longer, she leaves home and her beloved father, Ted. Free from her mother's impossible restrictions, Jessica renews a previously forbidden relationship with a returned soldier, Harry Watkins. They fall deeply in love, marry, and move to Harry's far-flung, outback property, Warudhar, where they work tirelessly to build a life together. All goes well, until world depression and the appearance of Harry's bitter wartime enemies lead to tragic consequences. Jessica is forced to call upon all her reserves of faith and friendship to survive.
