Burka's sisters were very pleased to meet Ned at last. They had heard so much about him in Burka's letters, and trusted him as the right person to help them settle into a new way of life in Australia. 
Having survived a brutal invasion of their home country by the West, and the perilous journeys by leaky boats from one country to the next, staying over six months at a time in numerous open refugee camps, the three sisters finally made it to the designated secret Northern Australian island beach.
The sisters clung to each other, weeping silent tears of joy, sorrow and relief, before being whisked away to a safer meeting place.... out of sight from those people who would have them locked up for their heroic desperate efforts to choose life over death, safety over living in terror....
