A follow-up to her best-seller, Women of the Land, City Girl, Country Girl brings together the stories of women who have left lives in the city or another country to build a new future in places where knowing how to milk a cow or drive a tractor stand them in far better stead than an ability to negotiate rush-hour traffic or find a good cappuccino.
It ranges in scope from the present day to the classic outback story of Sarah Durack in the late 1800s, and the author’s own mother’s experiences of swapping wartime Melbourne for a dairy farm on the Limestone Coast. City Girl, Country Girl is a compelling and fascinating account of these women’s journeys as they struggle through personal tragedy, hardship and self-doubt with grace, humour, perseverance and more than a little hard work.
