The fascinating characters that roam across the pages of Emma Donoghue's stories have all gone astray: they are emigrants, runaways, drifters, lovers old and new. They are goldminers and counterfeiters, attorneys, and slaves. They cross other borders too: those of race, law, sex, and sanity. They travel for love or money, incognito or under duress. With rich historical detail, the celebrated author of Room takes us from puritan Massachusetts to revolutionary New Jersey, antebellum Louisiana to the Toronto highway, lighting up four centuries of wanderings that have profound echoes in the present. Astray offers us a surprising and moving history for restless times.

Certainly an interesting collection of shorts...not sure I much cared for many of them. Based on my limited experience I felt the author had a good grasp on life in a very different era.

An entertaining series of short stories from the excellent Emma Donoghue, well-known for her book entitled "Room." These stories are taken from real history and the explanations of the real historical events at the end of each story were really well done. I also enjoyed the different readers for each story.
