Reviews

"Based on the true story of Mary Bryant, an iconic figure in the foundation lore of Australia as Great Britain's penal colony, Fled is a sweeping, heart-wrenching account of one woman's life-long search for freedom."--Fantastic Fiction

"The pages fly by. Keneally's tale of this fierce, passionate, unstoppable woman will leave you breathless--and wanting more. An epic story of love and liberty."--Elizabeth Cobbs, bestselling author of The Tubman Command "Meg Keneally's fast-paced Fled grabs you by the collar and yanks you through a riveting story of unexpected twists and turns that will leave you breathless. Jenny Trelawney Gwynn is fierce, brash, and independent. She may be an 18th century convict, but she's a heroine worthy of our 21st century #MeToo moment."--Stephanie Storey, author of Oil and Marble: a Novel of Leonardo and Michelangelo "A real page turner, this breathtaking yarn will keep you on the edge of your seat."--Dr Jonathan King, author of Mary Bryant - Her Life and Escape from Botany Bay "An irresistible feast of history, adventure, intrigue and tragedy. Epic yet tender. Authentic yet inspired."--Clare Wright, author of You Daughters of Freedom "I was utterly absorbed--swept up and transported into convict life. Jenny Trelawney's struggles--her intelligence, courage, and grit--as well as Meg Keneally's beautifully understated writing, kept me up past bedtime night after night."--Jane Rawson, author of From the Wreck "Meg Keneally's Fled is a page-turning high seas adventure led by an unlikely and utterly compelling woman. Jenny Trelawney Gwynn is the just the sort of literary heroine the world needs right now. By turns a grieving daughter, a thief, a convict, a fugitive, a mother, a wife, and an 18th century pop culture icon, she proves herself equal to any man and superior to most. I was cheering for Jenny from the first page to the last."--Tiffany Quay Tyson, award-winning author of The Past is Never "Fled is one of the most satisfying historical fiction accounts in recent memory, reminiscent of Peter Carey at the height of his powers . . . a triumph of feminist determination. If this is the standard Keneally is setting, it will be no surprise to see that famed surname etched anew on the nation's literary awards."--Saturday Paper (Australia) "A colorfully detailed showcase for the limits of courage, daring, and human resourcefulness. Keneally's Jenny is a powerful personality."--Daily Mail "Phenomenal. . . . An extraordinary story that is almost too fantastic to be believed."--Booktopia "Stunning . . . a wonderfully adventurous novel. . . . Woven with style, built on solid research and an insight into times past."--The Book Trail
