I was so looking forward to this book, following a review in "Your Family Tree Magazine" (a UK family history publication) that I ring jumped it....shhhh, don't tell anyone!!
I wasn't disappointed, It was a book that I was reluctant to put down and I've finished this in a couple of nights. Written in such a way that I became very absorbed in the story of Mary Broad and found the notes at the back of the book a useful reference point for further reading, as I have a interest in transported convicts of this period. Certainly one of my top ten reads for the year.
