Synopsis

Remember Me by Lesley Pearse

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

Based on a true story, Remember Me brings Mary Broad vividly to life in this moving story of a woman triumphing against overwhelming odds. She made one mistake, and now she'll never see home again . . . * from the publisher's description * With characters it is impossible not to care about . . . this is storytelling at its very best * Daily Mail * An emotional and moving epic you won't forget in a hurry * Woman's Weekly *
