IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Classic Australian Christian HistoricalNovember 18, 2013IolaNew ZealandAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Faith in the Great Southland is the first of four novels in the Australian Outback collection. I actually purchased this collection years ago, and have read and enjoyed all four of the stories, but I think Faith in the Great Southland, the story of John and Elizabeth, remains my favourite.
Mary Hawkins knows how to create compelling characters and a page-turning plot. She gives readers a clear understanding of the horrors of the criminal transportation system without being overly graphic (and after one character makes an early comment to another that conditions are much better than they used to be). While this story is fiction, transportation was fact and Faith in the Great Southland gives the reader an appreciation for what early Australian settlersÃ¢â¬âcriminal and freeÃ¢â¬âwent through in the early years of colonisation. Well worth reading.
