    I love historical fiction – I’ve learned so much along the way – including this book.  Had no idea that woman were treated so poorly – guess for the time frame should have realized it.  I had known England used Australian continent for men prison’s and recently finished In A Sunburned Country which does give you a good feel for the land and hardships there.  I loved most of the characters – of course the ones I didn’t like – there is always some in the crowd because there are always people in the world no matter the time frame that are out only to take care of themselves.  I think the book should stay on the list
