'Glaister's rounded gift is to show life as it really is' Independent on Sunday

Jennifer is in prison for an undisclosed crime. Denied companionship, she escapes into her memory and imagination.

Peggy Maybee, Jennifer's ancestor, was transported for stealing a peacock. This is all that is known about Peggy but Jennifer conjures a life for her aboard a convict ship bound for Botany Bay.

A partial eclipse of the moon used by the captain as inspiration for a sermon triggers a mutiny and, amidst the chaos of brawling thieves, cut-throats, whores and crew, Peggy makes a bid for freedom . . .

'Brilliant, seductive and assured' Nick Hornby
