The Boy with Blue Trousers

Author(s): Carol Jones

Fiction | July 2019 New Releases

On the goldfields of 19th-century Australia, two very different girls are trying to escape their past. English governess Violet Hartley has fled from England after a scandalous liaison. Now she is angling for a rich husband and a new life. Little Cat is fleeing from her home in Southern China after killing the powerful old man who tried to rape her. Disguised as a boy, she joins the huge Chinese workforce on the goldfields of Victoria. But the son of the murdered man is on her trail, intent on vengeance.

Violet Hartley becomes first suspicious, then jealous of the delicate looking Chinese boy. Love, sexual desire, violence and financial ambition entwine in this mesmerising saga by the author of The Concubine's Child.
