Just published – A Country To be Reckoned With
The story of a country and a man: George Matcham Pitt (GM), farmer, entrepreneur, founder of one of Australia’s first stock and stations agents, and my great great grandfather.
The extraordinary tale of early colonial Australia as seen through the eyes of Mary Pitt, a widow of 53 with five children ( and my four times great grandmother), who voluntarily migrated from her home in Dorset in 1801 to live in a penal colony.
Hidden in an attic for nearly 100 years this recently discovered ‘secret’ diary reveals the scandalous adventures of a respectable 1920s Englishwoman and mother of three, as she discovers for the first time that sex, even at her (slightly) advanced age, can be fun. (Names have been changed to protect reputations.)
