Travel Reads

I’ve had a review copy of this one for a while now, but have to finish it! Originally published in German, I find it interesting it is about colonial Australia. For some reason books set in rural Australia are HUGE in Germany.

The Convict’s Mistress: A heart-breaking tale of forbidden love in a new land by Inez Corbi

Australia, 1800: Moira, a young Irish girl, arrives in New South Wales with her much older husband, a doctor who has been sent to work at the penal colony.

Locked in a marriage of convenience, the blue skies and sunshine do nothing for Moira; she is miserable, far from home and her beloved horses. A future in this land of red earth seems bleak. But things change after she meets Duncan, one of the convicts, who she saves during a camp raid. As the two get to know each other they grow closer and Moira realises she may have a chance at happiness.

But how can she escape her controlling husband? And Duncan, imprisonment? Together they dream of a future that may never be possible . . .

This epic, sweeping tale of forbidden love and new beginnings is perfect for fans of The Tea Planter’s Wife.
