Meg Keneally, author of the bestseller Fled, and co-author of The Monsarrat Series, will be at the Parkes Library on Monday, 29th March at 6:30pm.
She will discuss her latest book The Wreck. Meg lives in Sydney with her husband and two children and works in corporate affairs, following a career in journalism and public relations. As a former scuba diving instructor who has always been fascinated by the ocean and history, in particular maritime history and archaeology, Meg’s latest novel is a historical mystery set in 1820.
It follows main protagonist, Sarah McCaffrey who is fleeing arrest for her part in a failed rebellion. She finds herself aboard the Serpent, bound for the colony of NSW. But when the mercurial Captain’s actions drive the ship into a cliff, Sarah is the only survivor. Adopting a false identity, Sarah soon begins to believe she might have found a home – until her past follows her across the seas.
