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!

Well researched and very enjoyable

Very impressed with the reading - being able to reproduce accurately various accents whilst always speaking clearly.

It didn’t occur to me that the story is indeed factual; that in itself is quite astonishing. All in all, much enjoyed.

Dragged towards the end

I normally love Lesley Pearce but this book didn't really grab my attention and it was far too long. I skipped the last 2.5 hours.

Remember Me

Oh my god that was a great story. And especially with it being true. it was gruesome in some parts I found but I kept listening to it. And it made me cry but I couldn't stop listening I finished it in 2 days. Mary was so brave and my heart went out to her and I felt like I was on the journey with her ❤️

Captivating and inspiring

This has been my favourite lesley pearse book by far, perhaps because it is based on a remarkable true story. The hardship, humiliation, gut wrenching life or death decisions this woman faces kept me hooked. What a different world it was back then.

Gripping ....... but what a heroine!!

This book is Lesley Pearse at her very best! Mary Broad / Bryant lived such an eventful and dreadful life and bringing this horror and painful to life in a novel is simple genius. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book.

Captivating Read

Lesley Pearse never fails to disappoint. Each book of hers that i have read or listened to is brilliant. This one was no exception and also the fact that it was based on a true story made it even better.

Always love a story based on truth

fascinating to know this was based on truth.. confronting and made me think of our Australian heritage in a new way. Narrator ok but had an irritating and repetitive upturn at the end of every clause. needs to work on expression.
