Remember Me

by Lesley Pearse

Penguin UK (PB) | July 26, 2011 | Trade Paperback

Remember Me is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.

The Queen of Storytellers is back — with a triumphant tale of one woman's struggle over adversity.

In 1786 a fisherman's daughter from Cornwall called Mary Broad was sentenced to be hung for theft. But her sentence was commuted, and she was transported to Australia, one of the first convicts to arrive there.

How Mary escaped the harsh existence of the colony and found true love, and how she was captured and taken back to London in chains, only to be released after a trial where she was defended by no less than James Boswell, is one of the most gripping and moving stories of human endeavour (based on an amazing true story) you will ever read.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Couldn't put it down Lesley Pearse has a way of depicting women, no matter status or stature, as strong and willful. I loved the character of Mary Broad and wish there was more information on her. Her struggles of trying to survive in a land unknown are heartbreaking and awe inspiring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I loved it This book is about Mary Broad, a 19 year old woman found guilty of highway robbery and sentenced to hang in the late 1700's. She receives a reprieve and is instead sent to Botany Bay in New South Wales Australia, a new penal colony for convicts. The story is about her hardships and her life a long the way. A definite tear jerker and a great book from begining to end. I would recommend this to anyone. It is worth every cent. I am planning on reading it a second time!
