The Tin Ticket - the heroic journey of Australia's convict women
 
(0 reviews)  

Tin Ticket tells the story of convict women discarded by their homeland and forgotten by history - who, by sheer force of will, become the heart and soul of a new Australian nation.

Tin Ticket takes us into the lives of Agnes McMillan, whose defiance and resilience carried her to a far more dramatic rebellion; Agnes's best friend Janet Houston, who rescued her from the Glasgow wynds and was also transported to Van Diemen's Land; Ludlow Tedder, forced to choose just one of her four children to accompany her to the other side of the world; Bridget Mulligan, who gave birth to a line of powerful women stretching to the present day. It also tells the tale of Elizabeth Gurney Fry, a Quaker reformer who touched all their lives.
