Looking for a tome of adventure? English Passengers is the one for you.
This is historical fiction at its best – set in the 19th century, it details the colonisation of Tasmania and consequent extermination of the native aborigine population. Alongside this is the humourous expedition of a group of Englishmen in search of the Garden of Eden, who have chartered a Manx smuggling vessel to take them all the way to Tasmania.
A brilliantly written epic novel with rich characters who’s points of view are excellently portrayed in their chapters.
The perfect Easter holiday read: escapism plus learning 🤓.
