Condemned to death for murdering her newborn baby, Hetty was rescued from the gallows at the last minute and her sentence commuted to exile. Set in the early years of the 19th Century, Hetty, or, To Hell with Adam Bede follows Hetty on board one of the notorious floating brothels to the convict colony of New South Wales. There she is assigned as maid of all work to the farmer Williamson, who seems determined to populate the fledgling colony from his own loins.

Rescued from a life of squalor by the romantic and sensitive Aboriginal bushranger Augustus, Hetty embarks on a life of adventure and gradually learns to confront her past and perhaps even rise to heroism.
