The Tin Ticket: The Heroic Journey of Australia's Convict Women 3.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 8 reviews.

This is an extremely well researched, well written, and thought provoking narrative. One shudders at the conditions that prevailed in women's prisons during the time frame of this story and also makes one marvel that anyone could be strong enough to withstand the ordeal of first being imprisoned and then shipped off to a country halfway across the world to continue that prison sentence. Tales of several specific women propel the reader through an engaging and unusual look at a slice of history that has largely been neglected.

Touching, engaging and overwhelming are the first three words that come to mind when trying to explain my feelings on this book. It's a remarkable true story that will have you crying and later on jumping for joy. The Tin Ticket taught me a lot about what it means to be a woman and also, how you have to fight for yourself because if you don't, no one else will. It's amazing and should be added to the reading lists at high school's everywhere. Five stars!

This is certainly a part of history that I didnt know much about. This is an amazing look at the early 1800 aristocracy vs poor in the UK and how a new country was born. I love this book but Im a history reader - its written as a novel so the story is hard to put away. Unbelieveable what these people had to endure.

Given the subject matter, this could and should have been a must read story. However, the manner in which it is written drags on and on before getting to a dubious conclusion. Had this been written in a more cogent style I would have recommended this book. As it is, the best word is disappointing.

This is an incredible book. I was amazed at the details found on the women's lives that this book focuses on. I was shocked at the journey these women had to go through as they were just trying to survive and were punished for it. I am still thinking about this book weeks after I finished it and thats how I know that this is one of the most important pieces I have ever read.
