    Journalist Luke Slattery is back with another book of historical fiction delving into subjects of eternal fascination for him – former Governor of Australia Lachlan Macquarie, his wife Elizabeth Macquarie and the chief convict architect of their regime, Francis Greenway. Slattery’s first foray into the revolutionary aspects of Macquarie’s Colonial-era reign occurred in The First Dismissal, a Penguin Special essay at 165 pages. Within this longer-form work, Slattery largely plays within the confines of historical records, while allowing his characters a redemption that wasn’t available to them in real life. And by placing the voice of Elizabeth Macquarie centre-stage, he elevates the voice of a woman whose recollections provide insights into a pivotal time in the conception of Australia’s nationhood and identity.
