Description

In Chain Letters, each chapter is a mini-detective story, either a search for the identity behind a particular account, or an attempt to piece a convict life together from scattered fragments of a tale. Issues of great contemporary interest arise from these stories, including the multicultural nature of Australian colonial society and, above all, the importance of love and hope.show more
