#amreading Mrs Kelly: The Astonishing life of Ned Kelly's mother

Author Name: 

This is quite the doorstopper so I may be gone for sometime.

From the Blurb:

Ellen Kelly was born during the troubles in Ireland. When she arrived in Melbourne in 1841 aged nine, British convict ships were still dumping their unhappy cargo in what was then known as the colony of New South Wales. When she died at the age of 91 in 1923, having outlived seven of her 12 children, motor cars plied the highway near her bush home north of Melbourne, and Australia was a modern sovereign nation.

Am Reading - A Murder Without Motive, Martin McKenzie-Murray

Been hearing lots and lots of whispers about how good this interesting approach to true crime is. 

From the Blurb:

In 2004, the body of a young Perth woman was found on the grounds of a primary school. Her name was Rebecca Ryle. The killing would mystify investigators, lawyers, and psychologists - and profoundly rearrange the life of the victim's family.
