    Mrs M

    An interesting slant on Australian early history. It gains strength in the latter chapters but mixing fact with fiction sometimes does not do Justice to the characters.

    Well written and interesting.

    This novel opened my eyes to early Sydney as a colony. Beautifully written and a engaging storyline.

    Mrs M

    Excellent. It sent me back to check my Australian history, which the book brought to life again for me.

    an absorbing read

    Very enjoyable, an historic novel describing much of what Lachlan Macquarie must have felt during his governship of NSW seen through the eyes of his loving wife; Mrs M also felt the strain whilst getting a deep affection for the southland but feeling neglected by her husband, who was immersed in his mission but also remained 'faithful' to his first deceased wife. Mrs M sought solace elsewhere, with 'The Architect', but it was never consumated. A delightful re-imagination of history written in a very readable style
