Review quote

"Within two months of each other in 1791, two English women set sail with their husbands on relief missions to two recently established and far-flung British colonies, Botany Bay on the east coast of New Holland, and Sierra Leone, West Africa. Their narratives shed light on colonialism, gender, and the slave trade."
