Guest: Ian Reid
Book Review - The Mind's Own Place (UWA Publishing)
Blurring the lines between fiction and historical fact, The Mind’s Own Place reveals the inner lives and outer worlds of five compelling characters whose fates are intertwined as they travel from Victorian England to begin afresh in the fledgling Swan River Colony. Two convicts, a former Scotland Yard detective sergeant and two young women, free settlers from disparate circumstances, bear secrets from the past that impact their survival in new surrounds. Reid’s vivid writing and attention to historical detail result in settings and characters that make for an enthralling and immersive reading experience.
