It's the 1900s. Thirteen-year-old Issy McKelvie leaves school and starts her first job, very reluctantly, as a maid in an undertaking establishment. She thinks this is about as low as you can go. But there's worse to come. Issy becomes an unwilling rat-catcher when the plague ‘the Black Death” arrives in Australia
