Beschreibung

This is the story of Margaret Catchpole, born into a smugglers' world in Suffolk in the late 1700s. As the valued servant of a wealthy family and a friend of criminals, Margaret leads a double life that inevitably brings about her downfall, and she is sentenced to hang not once, but twice. But she escapes the gallows and is transported with other convicts to Australia.

A wonderful adventure story, Scapegallows takes inspiration from the life of the real Margaret Catchpole. A woman who lived by her wits, she was a slip-gibbet, a scapegallows.

Rezension

'Birch deftly tells a story spanning several decades, with an intensity that is . . . lyrical . . . . and evokes the period without compromising her complex diachronic concerns TLS '[Birch has] a first class voice . . . An exciting and evocative fictional version of the life of Margaret Catchpole . . . The novel is a triumph of texture and historical detail'

Anmerkung

A convict colony in New South Wales, Australia is the setting for Carol Birch's new novel, based on real events. Now out in paperback, Birch proves once again that she is 'a born storyteller' TIMES
