  • At the moment I am trying to read some very early Australian history in the form of historical novels – again! Eleanor Dark’s Storm Time, th erum rebellion and all that. Could help with some family history I have been trying to write. Hmmm! Other authors for good readin have and wil be Peter Watt. I am currently reading his To Touch the Clouds. Thomas Kenneally is another, but I found his Three Famines related to irelanmd Potato Famine, the Ethiopina Famine and another in Bnagladesh rather hard going. i like other Kenneally works that I have read though.

  • That sounds like an interesting reading plan Colleen. I plan to do some early Australian history research in the near future for a fictional story I have ideas about. I will have to check out those titles you mentioned as they sound interesting. You mentioned the Potato Famine in Ireland, I read a novel not too long back called Brigid by Australian author Jill Blee. Perhaps you would like to check that out if you are interested in this history. You can view my review here:
