Bettany’s Book: A Novel
Thomas Keneally (au)
A compelling portrait of two generations from the 19th & 20th centuries. John Bettany writes “I was the Englishman overcome with enthusiasm for a barbarous place,” as he exhilarates on his journey into the New South Wales (Australia) of the 1840s. It is such thoughts, discovered in his personal journals & in the letters of Sarah Bernard, the convict woman he is destined to meet, that draw the Bettany sisters, Dimp & Prim, into the adventures of their ancestors 150 years later. John Bettany carved out a living in virgin territory under the eyes of the aboriginal Moth people. Sarah Bernard was interned in the notorious Female Factory. As John’s & Sarah’s paths converge, each sister finds her life cast in a new & galvanizing light.
