Publisher Description

It’s Sydney, 1909. A woman dies when Rebecca Sinclair performs an abortion. The verdict sends Rebecca to the Long Bay Women’s Penitentiary—just opened—for three years. Complicating the situation still further—Rebecca herself is pregnant. 


Inspired by letters found in an archive and a photograph of a young woman prisoner, Long Bay is a compelling, moving novel that reveals the harsh realities of living in poverty—and falling in love. 


Long Bay is that rare thing: a historical novel untainted by sentimentality, with a story not only fascinating in the context of its time, but made relevant to our modern world.’ — Hannah Kent, Burial Rites


First published in 2015, it went out of print with the closure of its original publisher, Sleepers Publishing.
