A Great Australian Story

The copy I have is called the Patriots which is a much better title. This volume was a real return to form for author William Stuart Long.

I found the story of Michael Wexford (aka Cadogan)totally engrossing and the second last chapter, when his sister's search for him ends, was heart stopping. The scenes from India with the De Lancey's were gripping, and I thought it was cool how Luke Murphy came back into the story. I also liked John Broome and felt real empathy for him. I don't have volume 9 and I wasn't going to bother, but I just have to know what happens next in this truly great Australian saga.
