No Room For Regret by Janeen Anne O'Connell

No Room For Regret


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award

"Historical fiction at its best."

February 1811
Consumed with loathing, 18-year-old James Tedder regretted trusting the 70-year-old diamond merchant. Chained below deck he listened to the sobs and wails of fellow prisoners. Putting his hand over his nose to filter the vile smells of sea sickness and bodily excrement, James wondered how his life on the other side of the world could ever be worth living.
Will he survive?

Paralysed with regret, James Blay rued his decision to try to sell the stolen boots. It was almost fatal. His death sentence, commuted to life in a place no one knew anything about, was little comfort. His wife and sons were left in London to fend for themselves.
Will he ever see them again?

May 1812
Sarah Blay watched the convict ship "Indefatigable" as it began its voyage to the other side of the world. Her shoemaker husband James and his friend James Tedder were on board. One year later Sarah bundled up her three small sons and said a final goodbye to her mother. She boarded the HMS Kangaroo, and followed her husband to Van Diemen’s Land.
Will Sarah regret her decision?
