Description

In 1839 fifty-eight men left Montreal for the penal colony of New South Wales. They were ordinary people who had been caught up in the political whirlwind of the 1838 rebellion. Even though they were all civilians, they had been tried by court martial. Convicted of treason, their properties forfeited to the crown, they paid a heavy price for rebellion. And as convicts in Australia, they were considered the lowest of a bad lot. During their years there, however, they earned the respect of Sydney’s citizens.

Editorial Reviews

Here is a terrible story well told.

— OHS Bulletin

Beverly Boissery...is both a trained historian and a novelist. In her book A Deep Sense of Wrong, she combines these skills to turn what might have been a solid but dull historical study into a fascinating story that interweaves political and legal history with a concern for the fate of individuals.

— University of Guelph

A Deep Sense of Wrong is an intriguing account of an obscure episode which links two of the oldest members of the Commonwealth, as well as being a tribute to the hardihood and integrity of those simple souls who survived their clash with an alien authority. No facile read, this, but well worth the effort.

— Chronicle Toowoomba
