The River Charm free pdf

A thrilling ride through Australia in the 1840s and beyond--based on the amazing true story of the author's own ancestors and the first children's book ever published in Australia

Meet 19th-century Australian girl Charlotte living during the depression of the 1840s, and her modern-day descendant Millie. Their story is one of gaining resilience and growing up, as well as fighting against convention for what you truly believe in--a mother fighting for the right to bring up her children, women's right to education and independence, a daughter fighting for her own life choices, and a modern-day girl gaining confidence in herself. It is also a story of one of Australia's early literary families.
