Description

In 1841, fifteen-year-old Bridie Stewart and her family leave their grim existence in Covent Garden and travel to a prosperous new life in Port Phillip. Bridie's mother and stepfather expect Bridie to grow up during the long months at sea, forget her dead father, and prepare for a sensible marriage in colonial Australia. But Bridie doesn't want to grow up, or ever forget her dad. She's determined to smuggle a notebook filled with his fairytales to the far side of the world. Age 12+

About Elizabeth Jane Corbett

When Elizabeth Jane Corbett isn't writing, she works as a librarian, teaches Welsh at the Melbourne Celtic Club, writes reviews and articles for the Historical Novel Society and blogs at elizabethjanecorbett.com. In 2009, her short-story, Beyond the Blackout Curtain, won the Bristol Short Story Prize. Another, Silent Night, was short listed for the Allan Marshall Short Story Award. An early draft of her debut novel, The Tides Between, was shortlisted for a HarperCollins Varuna manuscript development award. Elizabeth lives with her husband, Andrew, in a renovated timber cottage in Melbourne's inner-north. She likes red shoes, dark chocolate, commuter cycling, and reading quirky, character driven novels set once-upon-a-time in lands far, far away.
