Summary

In 1786 a fisherman's daughter from Cornwall called Mary Broad was sentenced to be hanged for theft. But her sentence was commuted, and she was transported to Australia, one of the first convicts to arrive there. 

How Mary escaped the harsh existence of the colony and found true love, and how she was captured and taken back to London in chains, only to be released after a trial where she was defended by no less than James Boswell, is one of the most gripping and moving stories of human endeavour (based on an amazing true story) you will ever listen to.

Gripping

This book is wonderfully written! It takes you back to a time & a horrific life you re-live with the characters. It’s a book that makes you realize the world we lived it. The classes, the punishments, the horror of the colonies. I could not stop listening to this book!
