Book Synopsis

Blurb About the Book

Confined to her bed by a stroke, believed to be comatose, and surrounded by greedy relatives, Sarah Oatland overhears a plot to commit murder.
 

In this historical novel, Simpson intertwines real historical events and figures with her own fictions, to 'map the silences' that traditional history leaves untouched. She masterfully weaves the reality of the darkness of Van Diemen's Land with brilliantly realised imaginings of the past on this remote island at the end of the earth.
