The Story of Eva Carmichael: The Wreck of the Loch Ard

When eighteen-year-old Eva Carmichael boarded the Loch Ard, she did so amidst rumours that the ships of the Loch Line were cursed. And so it came to pass. In 1878, the magnificent iron-hulled clipper was wrecked off the treacherous southern coast of Victoria, Australia. More than fifty lives were lost, except for Eva and a certain young seaman called Tom Pearce. Through the eyes of the indomitable Eva, awarding winning author Gary Crew retells this rich tale about the tragedy that would haunt her for the rest of her life.
