Kurzbeschreibung

The hand of fate, that had torn their lives apart, is now set to make their worlds collide once again.
BOUND TO SARAH will set you on a roller-coaster of emotions, graphic in description and action packed. This story is brutal and shockingly unpredictable.
In the year 1823, at the height of the British Empire and the colonization of Australia, Pat Roche sits on board a convict ship, sentenced for the term of his natural life to the New Colonies. All hope of ever seeing his wife and child again appeared to be lost. The ship is a fraught with tension under such a strict military guard; with one hundred and fifty criminals confined to a small space, it can only mean trouble. By the time the ship arrives at Van Dieman’s Land, there will be fighting, flogging, rape, murder and mutiny. Pat Roche will find himself involved in it all.
Sarah Roche has now been shunned by the local community and is struggling to fend for herself and her little boy. There is a terrible turn of events and she is soon to follow in her husband’s footsteps. So too will a desperate voyage begin for her on board the female convict ship, otherwise known as ‘Floating Brothels’. She arrives in Hobart a broken woman, only regaining her strength after a fleeting moment with her husband. Pat is being taken away to a place of unbearable torment; the notorious Sarah Island settlement, where escape is punishable by death.
Many colourful characters weave their way through the pages, creating a plot intertwined with deceit, retribution, murder, tragedy and enduring love, resulting in a heart wrenching climax.
For Pat Roche, when there is nothing more worth living for, a chance to escape and find his family is worth dying for.

5.0 von 5 Sternen intriguing 19. September 2011
Von Mark Liverpool UK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
When I read this book I found it really interesting and it turned out to be a cracking read. There's alot going on in the story that sees a husband and wife being seperated and both convicted to Van Dieman's Land's (Tasmania) penal colony. Without giving too much away, it takes them seven years to come back together but the things that happen in between times keep you reading and at times I couldn't put it down. It's full of surprises, some quite shocking and some quite grusome but all in all a thoroughly enjoyable read and would recommend to anyone interested.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Just a good read 16. August 2011
Von Kevin Connolly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed Bound to Sarah a lot. The boat scenes are very descriptive and well researched. A very good insight into convict life. The book keeps moving along and though a few too many amazing coincidences at the end still a thoroughly good read.
I am looking forward to Mr. Brennan's next work.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bound to Sarah 15. Januar 2012
Von Tce McCann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I decided to leisurely read this book over the Christmas period, but found that after reading the first chapter, I read it anything but a leisurely pace. Beginning in Liverpool at the turn of the 19th century the book recounts the story of two young lovers separated through desperately unfortunate circumstances and their emotional search for each other over a number of years and many thousands of miles. Bound To Sarah had me desperate to find out what would happen next, and though at times I was shocked by the brutal descriptions of the protagonists' experiences, the author's prose was delicate enough to overcome this.
Craig Brennan's achievement is that the history becomes but a background to a multitude of vivid characters , whose experiences he weaves expertly into a mesmerising whole novel. Bound to Sarah is a story about heart-wrenching suffering and extraordinary evil from those in authority, transformed by the author's talents into making it an enjoyable, albeit very emotional, and accessible first novel.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Historical Novel Society Online Review 5. Februar 2012
Von Helen Hollick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Bound to Sarah is a large, professionally produced book, although with a few typos and grammatical errors, it would have benefited from an editor's touch. Patrick Roche grew up in the slums of 19th-century Liverpool, surviving life on his charm and wits and determined to improve his lot, despite his drunken father and the harsh realities of existence. But he is dealt a cruel blow when he is wrongly convicted of a crime and transported to a Tasmanian penal colony. Roche has given up hope of seeing his wife and child again, but events mean that his family are also to suffer, and the cruel fate that had torn them apart intervenes yet again.
I was disappointed to find myself at page 43 and not devouring the story. The main character wasn't as interesting as some of the other prisoners--the reason, after thinking about it, was that the story starts by dropping the reader in the middle of a dockyard full of action and confusion, and begins with a ship full of men destined for deportation. If the story had started earlier in Roche's life, in my personal opinion, it might have made all the difference.
The story muddled along in places and the dialogue was sometimes slightly clumsy. However, I'm glad I persevered, for I found myself interested in the story, which, although harrowing in places, became quite absorbing. I could see that the author had taken time and effort in his research.
The lives of the characters were certainly harsh and the laws they were subjected to came across well. The historical detail given to the ships and how they were manned, crewed, and utilized for the deportation of prisoners was fascinating.
By the end of the story, I'm pleased to say that I cared about the fates of those concerned. All in all, it was a slow start but satisfying and very plausible ending. --

Excellent historical fiction about convict life in Australia. Having been to Sarah Island, I could appreciate the story line even more. I can recommend this book.
