Excerpt
Excerpt: THE ATHENAEUM. The scene of the story is Hobart, Tasmania; the time between 1830 and 1840?and the plot how Sir William Heans, an English gentleman, transported for a crime against society, finds his captivity insupportable, and makes three attempts to escape, of which the third is successful. But this simple plot is only the stem pushing up painfully into the forbidden light; from it there grow many dark, intricate branches and ashy fruits; the half-blind little girl, Abelia, clings to it smothering and pale like a clematis, and always wandering near is the old native woman, Gonapanny, with her hidden bracelet of black hair.
