Good story -important issues,

This review is from: English Passengers (Kindle Edition)
Although the story of Manx smugglers making a voyage to Tasmania is light-hearted, the issue of racism relating to the Tasmanian aborigines often takes a very serious turn and is apparently based on factual accounts. Ultimately it examines how people can align reality to their preconceptions (the extreme case is the manic vicar who thinks Tasmania contains the Garden of Eden). Anyway, the story is full of twists, turns and extraordinary characters and is a great page-turner.
