FIRST EDITION

Part fiction, part biography, this recreation of the life of the author's grandmother, Ethel Howat, provides information about Australian high society from the 1880s to WWII.

From the rich and shadowy interior of an old house overlooking Sydney Harbour, a granddaughter recreates in her imagination the elusive story of the grandmother she never met: Ethel, a woman passionately involved in literature politics and love, but ultimately thwarted in all three.

Unexpectedly, a world of dramatic secrets and almost forgotten scandal emerges from beneath a veneer of apparent propriety.
