Convict Lives at the Ross Female Factory is the second book in the Convict Lives series. It is the first book published by the Convict Women's Press.

From 1848 to 1854 the Ross Female Factory processed hundreds of women transported to Van Diemen's Land, providing "a complete institution for the exploitation of female convicts in the service of the great houses of the Midlands."  But, as the Female Convicts Research Group (Tasmania) remind us in this compelling book, many convict women who passed through the Ross Female Factory also found ways to challenge the convict system, to make their mark.

The book contains 29 stories from 21 contributors, all members of the Female Convicts Research Centre, and edited by Lucy Frost.
