If you are interested in the lives of women in the early 19th century,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tin Ticket, The : The Heroic Journey of Australia's Convict Women (Paperback)
then this is the book for you.. I am researching my family history and though none of mine were transported, I found this book extremely helpful and very readable.
Bought this book after seeing it on Goodreads as a giveaway, I didnt win the giveaway but the synopsis tempted me to buy anyway.
I found the book a bit of a page turner. It gave me a huge insight into the everyday lives of ordinary women in the early 19th century, the working conditions and the general harshness of life for them. The book tells the real stories of a few of the young girls and women and their lives prior to and after being sentenced to transportation.
An excellent read.
