I love the Australian history and as my father was a local historian I grew up hearing the early stories of the convicts. The harsh conditions of our early colonial days are definitely depicted in this book. There are a few errors, such as Bathurst being built on the Lachlan River. Bathurst is situated on the Macquarie River. Barriellier's map has him at the Little River at Porters Retreat south of Oberon, as he came up from the south.

A wonderful novel

loved it. The story woven into history moves along nicely and the characters come alive with both the skill of the author and the narrative.

I highly recommend Anh Do's life story. It is so uplifting but also gives an insight in to the lives of refugees and the struggles they encounter. An is an amazing man with a very positive outlook on life.

Like most people I knew Mary MacKillop was a saint and had been a nun who started an order to help under privileged children, however this book revealed a woman way ahead of her time and her fight against a male dominated feild was nothing short of amazing. This book is well worth a read to understand the challenges and opposition Mary had to wok through. She is definitely one of Australia's remarkable people.
