Book Club 'The Unmourned’
Recently arrived from Port Macquarie, ticket-of-leave gentleman convict Hugh Monsarrat now lives in Parramatta with his ever-loyal housekeeper Mrs Mulrooney. He is charged with uncovering the truth of Church's murder. Mrs Mulrooney accompanies him to the Female Factory, where he is takes depositions from the prisoners, and the housekeeper strikes up friendships with certain women, which prove most intriguing.
Monsarrat and Mrs Mulrooney both believe that Grace is innocent, but in this they are alone, so to exonerate her they must find the murderer. Many hated Church and are relieved by his death, but who would go so far as killing him?
Co-authors Tom and Meg Keneally will address a Literary luncheon in the Carabella Room and discuss the writing of the Monsarrat series.
