4 Stars. Our staff said, "Heart-breaking story about a family tragedy where each generation suffers the pain of being different and the inability to communicate."

Notes
4 Stars. Our staff said, "I’ve always been curious about how Great Britain could possibly transport and support a convict community in far off Australia and Van Diemen’s Land while dispersing the native population. Here is a glimpse of what conditions must have been like. At times the suffering is so hard to bear but the author brings hope to her family of characters who persevere despite terrible conditions. A fascinating history lesson."
