"She struggled to get women the vote. Her son was Australia's most famous writer. They drove each other crazy." Meticulously researched big Aussie historical novel that takes the lid off the world of Louisa Lawson and Henry Lawson and their circle of radical friends: revolution, poverty, love affairs, madness, drunkenness, sedition, terrorism, passionate hopes, and friendships with some of Australia's most remarkable people. Much historical info here is not in their biographies. "Good stuff – experientially, politically, anecdotally, stylistically, narratively, romantically, alcoholically. What more can one say?" -- Douglas Houston, PhD, co-editor of the Oxford 'Good Fiction Guide'.
