Morgan's Run by Colleen McCullough
Book DescriptionIt was one of the greatest human experiments ever undertaken: to populate an unknown land with the criminal, the unloved and the unwanted of English society. Amid conditions of brutality that paralleled those of slavery, 'The First Fleet' was sent to a place no European but the legendary Captain Cook had ever seen. Left to live or die on the hostile Australian continent, these convicts - and their equally isolated guards - occupy the centre of Colleen McCullough's compelling new epic. Richard Morgan - convicted felon and educated, intelligent, resourceful man - finds the will to survive, experience the joys of love, and finally make an indelible mark upon the new frontier. A thoroughly researched historical saga rich in romance, adventure and unforgettable characters, Morgan's Run has the makings of a modern classic.

Water is Life, Hardback (December 2016)View all books by Colleen McCullough
Before she died in 2015, Colleen McCullough finished her last book - not a novel, but this short, thought-provoking book on water resources and how we use them, along with an affectionate and enlightening portrait of her friend Michael Crouch, the pioneering businessman who built Zip water heaters into a hugely successful Australian company.
UK Kirkus Review » The best-selling author of The Thorn Birds returns with another saga set in Australia, this time unfolding during the American War of Independence. Gunsmith and Bristol taverner Richard Morgan finds himself a convicted felon after being set up by scheming adversaries. He, like countless other convicts, is sent to the unknown continent of Australia and begins a new life that develops into something infinitely more rewarding over the years. This historical saga bears the signs of exhaustive research but never truly takes flight. Based on fact - the Morgan of the title is a real historical figure related to the author's husband - a potentially fascinating story is hindered by a lack of persuasive characterization. (Kirkus UK)
