Favourite Book(s) #16 – Floating Brothel by Sian Rees

Floating BrothelI have read my copy of this book so often that the cover is looking a bit tatty and the glue that holds the paperback cover in place is a bit loose.

The book is based upon the true historical events of 18th Century ship and the female convicts that were transported to Botany Bay.  The title does suggest that that the contents are “racey” but it is not especially so.

This is the  very readable account of the transportation of women on board the vessel Lady Julian. 

At the back of my mind, I am sure there was talk of this being made into a film, but it appears nothing came of that, either that, or I am dreaming!
