Christina Baker Kline, bestselling author of Orphan Train, crafts another compelling page turner in The Exiles. Powerful, emotional, and immersive, The Exiles follows three brave women forging unbreakable bonds and overcoming brutal conditions in 19th-century Australia.
The women, two banished from their motherland of England and the other—a young Aboriginal girl—forcibly relocated by white colonists, have little in common other than their exile. Through circumstance and necessity, they band together to survive in a strange new land.
"A tour de force of original thought, imagination and promise ... Kline takes full advantage of fiction—its freedom to create compelling characters who fully illuminate monumental events to make history accessible and forever etched in our minds." —Houston Chronicle
With intricate detail and lovely words, Kline weaves an unforgettable story of perseverance and redemption, celebrating the power of female friendships in the face of punishing hardships.
In case you need more incentive to read this book, it may help to know that it has been optioned for television by the producer of HBO's Big Little Lies.
