I picked this up from the table in Mary Martin Bookshop while I was out trying to find the aforementioned “Distraction”. I simply cannot enter a bookshop and not buy something….I am utterly and unapologetically hopeless!
There were three things that made me add it to my shopping!
1. “McKellar”. Firstly I wondered if this Author is in some way related to Dorothea McKellar? (Apologies to the author – she probably gets this alot!)
2. The front cover review….
“MacKellar makes terrifically vivid the often unsung strength of women brave in their new worlds.”…Anna Funder
3. This book is a representation of true stories of women and their lives.
I love books like this. Will start this one on the train tonight in the absence of “Distraction”…funny distracted from reading “Distraction”.
