'Clear, authentic and utterly engaging . . . it is as successful as it is authentic' Independent on SundayBorn to an unhappy marriage and into a deeply sexist society, Nance Russell worked hard for everything she had, and while the world changed around her, she went on to university, to opening businesses and raising a family.
One Life is Nance's story - and many other women's too - beautifully captured by her daughter, the bestselling novelist Kate Grenville.
Kate draws on the tales passed down to her to create an evocative portrait of life in twentieth-century rural Australia, and a deeply intimate and caring homage to a mother.
