That Bligh Girl by Sue Williams

 'Superb narration and engrossing drama.' Tom Keneally

Sue Williams returns to the untold stories of the women of colonial Sydney with another fascinating, meticulously researched historical novel.

Mary Bligh is no shrinking violet. After a horrific six-month sea voyage from Britain, she proves as strong-willed as her bloody-minded father, the newly appointed Governor William Bligh. The pair scandalises Sydney with their personalities, politics, and her pantaloons. When three hundred armed soldiers of the Rum Rebellion march on Government House to depose him, the governor is nowhere to be seen. Instead, Mary stands defiantly at the gates, fighting them back with just her parasol.

Despite being bullied, belittled and betrayed, Mary remains steadfast, even when her desperate father double-crosses her yet again in his last-ditch attempt to cling to power. But will Mary turn out to be her father's daughter and deceive him in pursuit of her dreams and ambitions?
