Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Colleen McCullough captivated millions with her beloved worldwide bestseller The Thorn Birds. Now she takes readers to the birth of modern Australia with a breath-taking saga brimming with drama, history, and passion.

It was one of the greatest human experiments ever undertaken: to populate an unknown continent with the criminals of English society. For Richard Morgan, twelve months as a prisoner on the high seas would be just the beginning in a soul-trying test to survive in a hostile new land where, against all odds, he would find a new love and a new life. From the dank cells of England's prisons to the unforgiving frontier of the eighteenth-century outback, Morgan's Run is the epic tale of one man whose strength and character helped settle a country and define its future.

Synopsis:

Following the disappearance of his only son and the death of his beloved wife, Richard Morgan is wrongly convicted of a crime and exiled to England's 18th-century penal colony in Australia. Morgan refuses to surrender to his fate, and begins a soul-trying test to survive in this hostile new land where, against all odds, he would find a new love and a new life.
