I really enjoyed this book. It's historical fiction about the colonizing of Australia and New Zealand by the English people. I really enjoyed the descriptions of life on the boat while they were traveling. The thing that I found the funniest about this book is that one of the crew was named Mr. Frew. Frew just happens to be my maiden name and it's not all that common. The book follows the journey of Edward Morgan and Lauryn Kelly as well as the McAllister family. I think that my favorite type of fiction is historical fiction. I always have wondered how things started out and why they happen the way they happen. I'm just kind of funny like that!
