In 1860 eighteen-year-old Harriet Warrington’s life changes forever when she falls in love with Lawrence Fitzgerald, her younger and sickly sister’s fiancé. When Lawrence reciprocates the feeling, Harriet feels she has no choice but to impose an exile on herself, and so leaves her small English village to live in Edinburgh, until Lawrence and Caroline are safely wed.
However, whilst in Scotland Harriet commits a crime worthy of hanging. Her escape to the Colonies is her only safe refuge, leaving behind, not only her act of violence, but also everything and everyone she has known and loved, little realising that true love never forgets, never lets go, and with time only becomes stronger.

‘A Good Colonial Woman’ is a poignant story about unconditional love, strength and sacrifice, as told by Harriet through her enduring memories and wry sense of humour.
