Secret TragediesReview by Annie
Beth is eagerly looking forward to a new life with her father Bill. He was transported to New South Wales as a convict but is now settled as a trusted farm employee. Beth's mother has died and she and her two brothers have been brought up by their aunts. The boys know nothing of their father's past, having been told he went to Australia to make a new home for them.

The vindictive jealousy of her father's love interest Bridget leads her to make a tragic decision: she accepts a proposal of marriage from a virtual stranger. William's broken childhood resonates with her, drawing her sympathy. But ever so slowly, it becomes apparent William is too shattered to ever cope or act as a husband. He is moody, withdrawn, obsessively neat and perfectionistic, secretly alcoholic.

While Beth tries to keep secret the growing tragedy of her marriage, her new mother-in-law is equally desperate to keep Bill's past hidden. Beth is sure her brothers will inevitably find out and no good will come of concealing her father's convict history.

Although slow-moving at times, the story is pulled along by the characters who are so flawed with the brokenness of their own humanity they invite the reader to keep going to find out if their problems are ever resolved. (Posted on 18/02/2016)
