Surviving Sydney Cove: The Diary of Elizabeth Harvey
Lizzie Harvey, a convict transported to Sydney Cove, is starving and overworked. She can barely find time to dream about the way things used to be, let alone write in her diary. But write she must. It is her only hope of reaching out to the home she has left behind, all those thousands of miles away across the sea.
Depicts how life was for convicts during the early European settlement of Sydney. The story stays reasonably true to fact however it isn’t too grim for children, written for the over 10 set.
