We have signed copies available of The Exiles: A Novel, signed on a specially-bound tip-in page by author Christina Baker Kline.
"A powerful novel about a little known part of 19th-century history, The Exiles is the story of two young women, convicts, transported on a former slave ship into exile in Australia, and of an aboriginal girl taken from her people and forced to live with the English governor and his wife. A compelling narrative of strength in the face of abusive hardship and tragedy, it is a riveting book, hard to put down once started. Well-researched, well-written, excellent historical fiction." - Trey, Bookshop Santa Cruz Staff
