    One thought on “Escape From Botany Bay”

    1. It was an okay read but not as great as you might think reading the reviews on amazon.What I did not like is it was so distant and so many sufferings you become mute for it. As someone else mentioned. This felt more like a reader's digest story. Could have been so much more.2 or 3 stars.??

    2. The story of Mary is such an interesting one, being deported to Australia penal colon after simply stealing a bonnet only to escape again. This book just skimmed over it. I wanted so much more in this novel.

    3. Having read this most interesting book and others I have read relating to the journey and arrival of the First and subsequent Fleets, I wonder why Australia hasn't written these events into their history books. We hear very little about it and the events which took place at Botany Bay and Port Jackson. Many towns in Australia are named after many of the British involved. The story of Mary Bryant, her marrriage, her escape and subsequent capture then release, bearing children and family deaths an [...]

    4. I was enthralled from beginning to end, the voice of Mary and her strong spirit shines through as the true driving force of this incredible and thrilling flight to freedom.

    5. I really liked this story of Mary Bryant, a heroine in many eyes and how she lived a treacherous, horrible life as a convicted thief (a silk bonnet)she stole as a young girl. She was a convict that was strong despite the terrible conditions she endured at sea and on land. Her story will tell her life through those times. Its written in short chapters, so an easy and really good read. From : Condemned to a penal colony in Australia for stealing a woman's bonnet, young Mary braves every danger in [...]

    6. This little novel was surprisingly good. I loved the narrative voice, and the story was absolutely riveting. There were a few typos and formatting errors in the Kindle version, but these could be forgiven for the compelling content within. The story of Mary, and her journey from English prisons to Botany Bay (Sydney, when it was a penal colony) and then back again are one of the best examples of human survival in conditions where nature and men are intent on returning you to the bottom. I was re [...]

    7. I enjoyed this book. I love to read books about things and events that aren't usually taught in school. This one did not disappoint. I especially appreciate the author's subtlety in letting us know about the rapes and mistreatment of the women without going into details. Of course, this is the reason that I prefer books written for the younger audience; I know that I am not likely to have to endure a lot of violence and sex details.Anyway, as I said, I enjoyed this book and am amazed at Mary Bry [...]

    8. After stealing a bonnet, Mary is sentenced to death. Her sentence was commuted to serving out her life in Botany Bay (Australia). Although the other convicts shipped to Botany Bay were convicted of similar crimes, it was a horrible place to live and Mary escaped with several others for a terrifying journey of a few thousand miles. An incredible tale (and true story) that I could hardly put down.

    9. Amazing story of survivalFrom the first page to the last I couldn't put it down. Mary Bryant 's is a harrowing story filled with hardship and bravery. Gerald and Loretta make the long sea voyages,the struggles and triumphs, and the little kindnesses of Mary's life come alive on the page.

    10. This is the fabulous tale of Mary Bryant. This is the second book that deals with Mary Bryant. The first book is The Girl From Botany Bay. This is just as good a The Girl From Botany Bay. So sit down, and live through Mary's journey

    11. A good introduction to a story I'd never heard of before. Not that I've read a lot about the conditions of convicts shipped to Australia anyway. It was worth reading for that alone.

    12. I enjoyed this one so much that I read the entire thing in one afternoon! It's a story of survival, hope, and being strong when that is the only option you have. Great read.

    13. 2008- Interesting novel based on a true story, but the level of detail (or lack thereof) pegged it as a young adult's book. I felt like a lot more could have been done with the material.
