About the Author

Wendy Hamilton is George Richard's great, great, granddaughter. She comes down through the line of his youngest son John, whose son was Frank. Frank was the father of Shirley, Wendy's mother. George Meredith's manuscript fell into Wendy's hands through Shirley's cousin Rex Livingstone. What makes the writing of this book so significant to Wendy, is prior to this she knew nothing of the Meredith branch of the family, other than they came from Timaru. Although Shirley remembers her father faithfully writing to his parents every week, he never once spoke of them. The one thing we do know, is the marriage was not a happy one like George and Jessie's marriage, for it ended in separation. To discover a forefather as adventurous and brave as George has been a delight for Wendy. His voice comes out strong and cheerful in his writing. To find he was a man who trusted God was like uncovering buried treasure. This is the first historical book Wendy has worked on and she hopes it won't be her last. Through it she has discovered she loves researching history. She and her husband, Ian, and four children live in New South Wales Australia.
