Citation: Dooley, Gillian 2004. Review of "Women on the Rocks: A Tale of Two Convicts" by Kristin Williamson. 'The Adelaide Review', January, 26.
Abstract: In "Women on the Rocks", Kristin Williamson has created a novel from scraps of historical fact concerning two female convicts: Mary Jones, who arrived in Sydney in 1820, and Maria Wilkinson, alias Jane New, who was sent to Hobart Town in 1824. Using these two women as the focus of her narrative, she has woven what is known about them together with other snippets of information into a plausible fiction.
