In No Place for a Nervous Lady, Lucy Frost brings alive the harshness of Australian colonial life with an important selection of women's diaries and letters. With biographical commentary, the stories these women tell privately are full of passion, pleasure, and pain and loss.
Women included: Anna Cook, Ellen Moger, Louisa Clifton, Annie Baxter, Penelope Selby, Louisa Geoghehan, M A Oliver, Ellen Ollard, Rosa Payne, Ann Williams, Lucy Jones, Sarah Davenport and Mary Jane MacGregor.
