Recollections of Geoffrey Hamlyn

by Henry Kingsley

The history of a family and their friends who leave Devon and settle on farms in New South Wales, where a villain, formerly transported as a convict, turns up as head of a fiendish gang of bushrangers. The incidents are thrilling, the scenes of happy family life and the portraits of healthy, sterling character have a genuine fascination, and the glorious scenery of Gippsland is depicted with a vivid pen very different from Charles Kingsley's elaborate word-painting.

Author of the Day

Carrie Doyle
Carrie Doyle's mysteries are extra cozy. She loves keeping her readers guessing, but also appealing to their senses with charming scenes straight from East Hampton, quirky characters and mouthwatering food descriptions. When she is not writing her latest novel, Doyle is sure to be part of one of a myriad of projects, which may include co-writing with another author, doing magazine articles, interviewing celebrities, arranging events or cooking up a storm in the kitchen. As our Author of the Day, Doyle talks about why her books are so yummy, gives us some insights in the character of Antonia Bingham and reveals why East Hampton is her favorite place in the world.
