NZ Fiction

Charlotte Badger became the first white woman to live in New Zealand, after taking part in a mutiny following a vicious flogging aboard a civilian cargo ship. This novel recreates the adventurous life of this remarkable woman fugitive, her daughter, and their fellow mutineers. Charlotte, her daughter Anny, her friends Kitty, Lanky and the others were just names in the historical record until Angela Badger started researching the life of an earlier member of the Badger family. Escaping from Van Diemen's Land and New South Wales after commandeering the colonial brig, the "Venus", the mutineers settle for an initially peaceful life with the Maoris in New Zealand. But simmering tensions within their group eventually burst into the open. The peace is shattered and escape to America is the only chance of survival. But how many will reach America?
