Tricia McGill

Author Tricia McGillabout this book: When visiting Sydney and the surrounding areas these days it is difficult to imagine what it must have been like when it was a penal colony in the 1800s. Botany Bay was an unforgiving and harsh place where the convicts who were transported from Britain were treated like the scum of the earth. Isabella is one of these unfortunates who was sentenced to seven years transportation. The trip across would have been horrific enough in those days, but then to arrive in an Australia that was little more than a collection of huts with little sanitation and the thought of being assigned to a master. Bella was fortunate in that the master who chose her at the docks had dreams above his station, and was not solely after a new bed-warmer. She was determined to hate Tiger Carstairs, for he was an Englishman, and she was sent to the penal colony for attacking one such as him.

Mystic Mountains is a story of courage and persistence-essential traits for the settlers who carved out a new life in a raw land where suffering and heartbreak were commonplace. Bella and Tiger face many hardships in their quest for a new life in this untamed land.
