Review

'history at its most engaging' (Daily Telegraph 2002-01-12)

'Rees's lively, closely researched account of life in London's underworld and on board ship is a testimony to the spirit and resilience of women...' (The Sunday Times 2002-02-24)

'highly accomplished debut...comparable in power to Golding's Rites Of Passage' (Independent 2002-01-12)

Synopsis

In July 1789, 237 women convicts left England for Botany Bay in Australia on board a ship called The Lady Julian, destined to provide sexual services and a breeding bank for the men already there. This is the enthralling story of the women and their voyage. Based on painstaking research into contemporary sources such as letters, trial records and the first-hand account of the voyage written by the ship's steward, John Nicol, this is a riveting work of recovered history. The Floating Brothel brilliantly conjures up the sights, sounds and particularly the smells of life on board ship at the time and is populated by a cast of larger-than-life characters you will never forget.
