A Lady in Irons
England and Parramatta from 1814
This story was inspired by Susannah Riley/Narin who was convicted while pregnant and gave birth to her son John in Rio De Janerio on the way out to the colony.
As I wished to do a story about the building of the Female Factory, and this of course involved Governor Lachlan Macquarie. He was one amazing man and I wished to honor the work he did for our infant colony.
I have used his personal diaries as my primary source of information - they are availab efree online.
So good that I made two movie trailers! Watch them both!
