    VOYAGE TO THE LAST FRONTIER... The first book in the dramatic and intriguing story about the colonisation of Australia: a country built on blood, passion, and dreams.They were transported from 1780s’ England, packed like cattle in cargo compartments: scammers and prostitutes, thieves and murderers — doomed to build His Majesty’s new colony in Captain Cook's anchorage in Botany Bay.It was a cruel fate even for the toughest of individuals but especially for 15-year-old Jenny Taggart, who was sentenced to lifelong exile for a crime she did not commit.Will there be a future for her in this unknown country, or will she succumb to a rough and brutal life? Rebels and outcasts, they fled halfway across the earth to settle the harsh Australian wastelands. Decades later — ennobled by love and strengthened by tragedy — they had transformed a wilderness into a fertile land. And themselves into The Australians.Vivian Stuart was a British writer and during her writing career she had more than 70 books published in Australia, USA and the UK.Born in Berkshire in England, she spent most of her youth in Burma and India, and later lived in Hungary and Australia. At the age of thirty-five she began to write romantic fiction but soon devoted her attention to military and historical novels.The Australians series was her most ambitious venture. Originally envisaged as a series of six books, it was extended to many more by popular demand.“This series - the Australians - is one of the best 'good reads' I know and the perfect way to learn the history of Australia” ― Goodreads reviewer“Loved this book. So descriptive, was like a movie playing in my head” ― Goodreads reviewer“This book was a total surprise. The Exiles was the first book I have read for along time which actually made me cry.

I'm totally hooked on this series about the founding of Australia by the "dregs of society" in England, mostly around London at the time” ― Goodreads reviewer
