Poppy at Summerhill is the second story in a set of four about the amazing journey of a young Chinese Aboriginal girl, who lives on a Christian mission in 1864. It is a story of bravery and love, as Poppy sets out to chase her brother after he escapes from the Mission in search of freedom and a better life.
In this second book, Poppy is taken in by caring homestead family, after a terrible accident leaves her injured. The family's aboriginal stockman, Tommy, awakens Poppy's Aboriginal roots and teaches her about their culture.
