The Exiles explores the plight of women and children before the 20th century in so many ways, but especially widows, orphans and single women not born to privilege. The sheer will and tenacity of life is told through the stories of different characters (Evangeline, Olive, Hazel and Mathinna) each of whom will tear at your heart. Beyond that the Exiles deals with the perfidy and prejudice and the violence not only of the penal system but also of Colonialism in Australia, all in a beautifully rendered novel where I fell in love with women who could have been my ancestors or yours. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan
