FALSELY ACCUSED – Margaret Tanner




This fabulous book was previously published under the title Savage Utopia. It has been reworked, renamed and re-released.

I have had the pleasure of reading this and highly recommend it. Margaret is one of the best Australian authors around and her books are worth every cent.




On board the convict ship taking them to the penal colony of Australia, Maryanne Watson and Jake Smith meet and fall in love, but Jake hides a terrible secret that will take him to the gallows if it ever comes out.

On arrival in Sydney the lovers are separated. Maryanne is sent to work for the lecherous Captain Fitzhugh. After he attacks her she flees into the wilderness and eventually meets up with Jake who has escaped from a chain gang. They set up home in a hidden valley and Maryanne falls pregnant. Will Jake come out of hiding to protect his fledgling family? And how can love triumph over such crushing odds?
