Mrs Jewell & the Wreck of the General Grant is an imaginary story of what might have happened to the historic fifteen souls who survived the wreck and eighteen months castaway on the sub-Antartic Auckland Islands. The ship —missing for 156 years in a cave on one of the wildest stretches of coastline in the world—is, perhaps, about to be found. Writing historical fiction doesn’t get more thrilling than this.
To be published by the Cuba Press, June 2022 with the support of Creative New Zealand.
