"We are at war!" cried Mr. James Thiftlethwaite. Every head save Richard Morgan's lifted and turned toward the door.... (from the first line)
Following the disappearance of his only son and the death of his beloved wife, Richard Morgan is wrongly convicted of a crime and exiled to England's 18th-century penal colony in Australia. Morgan refuses to surrender to his fate, and begins a soul-trying test to survive in this hostile new land where, against all odds, he would find a new love and a new life.

Praise

Washington Post Book World
"[t]he Australian author of the bestselling THORN BIRDS hews to a formula: Schlocky love story superimposed on compelling historic episode equals, with any luck, blockbuster. Thus MORGAN'S RUN, McCullough's latest docu-novel, tells the dramatic story of Australia's bumpy start as a penal colony in 1788 from the point of view of an improbably handsome, virtuous, well-muscled, well-educated convict named Richard Morgan. Don't expect literature....McCullough really shines at scene-setting, as opposed to history....She may not be able to produce a credible hero to save her life, or settle an academic debate about the philosophical underpinnings of transportation, but she can conjure up a tavern or courtroom scene or the below-decks hell of a convict ship in all their grainy, teeming, Hogarthian detail." - Elizabeth Ward 09/24/2000

New York Times Book Review
"The novel displays fine, informative period details....The history here is generally convincing, if often crammed awkwardly into dialogue or explanatory digressions. It's Richard's unbelievably heroic character, and his lack of compelling emotions, that run this book aground." - Peter Bricklebank 10/22/2000
