    Always leave a little salt on the bread. Ikey Solomon's favorite saying is also his way of doing business, and in the business of thieving he's very successful indeed. Ikey's partner in crime is his mistress, the forthright Mary Abacus, until misfortune befalls them. They are parted and each must make the harsh journey from thriving nineteenth century London to the convict settlement of Van Diemen's Land.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Potato Factory to be better than the print version?

    Bryce Courtneys epic tale brought to life: a mastery of narration! Humphrey Bower's extensive knowledge of the different accents and his ability to give each character a distinctive voice make this book a pleasure to listen to, adding a further dimension to the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    The history of Australia and the convicts who came here has never been more captivating. It leaves the reader wanting to know more about this pivotal point in English and Australian history.


    What does Humphrey Bower bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Bower presents us with a living link to Courtney's web of intermingling characters who sometimes shock us and always endear themselves to us.His descriptions of people and places are raw, real.....


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could have listened to this all at once!


    Any additional comments?

    A thoroughly enjoyable book - will definately be dowloading the entire trilogy!
