The Floating Brothel
The Floating Brothel
Three women uncover the rags-to-respectability tale of their ancestors - the feisty convicts who became the unlikely founding mothers of modern Australia. In 1789, the fledgling penal settlement in Sydney was battling to survive, but help would come from a most unlikely quarter. This is the rip-roaring tale of The Lady Juliana and the boatload of streetgirls, thieves and con-women who sailed to the ends of the earth to breathe life and a sense of enterprise into a dying colony. Together they would give Australia something much more - a future.
