Fiction

Age 9 and sentenced to hang! Maggie endures an adventurous odyssey to womanhood in a British colony of the 1830s.

Bookhabit

A waif flees from Scotland and finds herself among gentryfolk who are seeking an Eden at the end of the world. Free from Europe's political turmoil, they foresee peaceful plantations and the restoration of class barriers. Instead, it becomes a hell ruled by tyranny and murder.

Staunch in her creed of True Justice, grown-up Maggie crusades in favour of the dispossessed indigenous tribes. But things go awry, because her education, entirely from books and personal experiences, has failed to instil diplomacy. She's a heroine whose actions bring chaos.

NOTE: The first edition of this novel was titled Great Land of Dreams, as was the subsequent paperback on Amazon.


Excerpt

OPENING:
A finger of sunshine pierced the grime of courtroom windows, polished the dock's varnished panels and created a halo for the prisoner, she who was called Maggie, age 9.
The charge was murder. The judge: Mr Justice Gallows.
