Why did your ancestors leave everything they owned, and their family and friends, and emigrate to the new colonies?
I have my own researched theories about my family. Their story is written as fiction based upon hearsay, documents, and years of family tree research and travel. You may find your own answers in this novel. First of the series.
New on the market, my Historical Fiction novel exploring the reality of life for those of us whose ancestors immigrated from Britain in the midd 1860s.


BOOK Synopsis
Author Glennis Browne's riveting plot and well-drawn characters, delves into issues facing the population of Great Britain in the mid 1800's.

Browne asks, is it true we cannot avoid suffering, but we can choose how to cope with it?
Will finding meaning in suffering, move us forward with renewed purpose? Does love bring peace? Does understanding forgiveness renew faith in God? Browne explores in story form, whether life is about spiritual survival, after considering the theories of psychiatrist, Victor Frankl.
His argument:- our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we find personally meaningful. She also bases her story upon Biblical interpretations, exploring huge questions in the context of two families.explores historic incidents of grief and poverty. Situations affecting thousands of immigrants moving to Australia during the Australian gold-rush years. Including her own family.

You will meet Dan - a deep thinker, who challenges Welsh Calvinist beliefs which gained converts throughout the 17th and 18th centuries. Branded a rebellious non conformist, he is desperate to escape confusing doctrines to discover his identity.
Charlotte predicts shame and disgrace as her destiny; after indulging in a relationship fraught with complicated challenges.
Separately they join the thousands of emigrants who became the early pioneers in Australia.

'The Fortune Seekers - Dan and Charlotte' is a book portraying crisis, hope, adventure, and love. Repercussions from sexual experimentation, marital infidelity, religious bigotry and family estrangement are explored in this compelling tale of 18th century life.
What is the meaningful lives Dan and Charlotte are seeking? And is such a destiny achievable?
Author Glennis Browne, through her protagonists lives, examines possibilities in her debut novel, 'The Fortune Seekers - Dan and Charlotte'.
The 21st century reader will discover their own ancestors' experiences; perhaps providing answers as Browne chronicles possibilities

The human condition is "the characteristics, key events, and situations which compose the essentials of human existence, such as birth, growth, emotionality, aspiration, conflict, and mortality."[1] This is a very broad topic which has been and continues to be pondered and analyzed from many perspectives, including those of religion, philosophy, history, art, literature, anthropology, psychology, and biology.
As a literary term, "the human condition" is typically used in the context of ambiguous subjects such as the meaning of life or moral concerns.[2]

Human self-reflection is the capacity of humans to exercise introspectionand the willingness to learn more about their fundamental nature, purpose and essence. The earliest historical records demonstrate the great interest which humanity has had in itself.
Human self-reflection is related to the philosophy of consciousness, the topic of awareness, consciousness in general and the philosophy of mind.[citation needed]
These questions have particularly important implications in economy, ethics, politics, and theology. This is partly because human nature can be regarded as both a source of norms of conduct or ways of life, as well as presenting obstacles or constraints on living a good life. The complex implications of such questions are also dealt with in art and literature, the question of what it is to be human.
