book 6 in the The Australians series
The sixth book in the dramatic and intriguing story about the colonisation of Australia: a country built on blood, passion, and dreams. Twenty thousand kilometres and four months of sailing are what stands between England and the colony of Australia. In his struggles to bring order in the colony, and to protect its settlers from abuse of power, and injustice, Governor Bligh is up against some powerful enemies and mischievous schemers. Three strong-minded governors have failed to complete the task before him ... And England seems to have had enough of the war against France. 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. “Outstanding historical research and gripping characters. Flawless writing. Historical novel writing at its best” ― Goodreads reviewer “I loved this entire series. I read it when I was in high school, and it inspired my love for all things Australian” ― Goodreads reviewer “If you love history, you'll love this book” ― Goodreads reviewerShow more
