Summary
William Buchanan lived an extraordinary life- born a slave on a plantation in Jamaica, he escaped the gallows more than once, took part in the rebellion that led to the end of slavery in Jamaica, was transported to the other side of the world as punishment, tried his hand at robbing stage coaches, and finally won true freedom on Australian soil. Sienna Brown came across William's story while working in Hyde Park Barracks, the very building he was transported to in Sydney. Sharing his Jamaican background, Sienna was inspired to write Master of My Fate, a novel based on his story. Told through William's voice, this is a lyrical, historical, coming of age story about learning to fight for your rights - and finally becoming the master of your own fate
