With this warning, Sybylla confesses to her rich and handsome suitor that she is given to writing stories and bound, therefore, on a brilliant career.
In this ironically titled and exuberant work by Miles Franklin, originally published in 1901, Sybylla tells the story of growing up passionate and rebellious in rural New South Wales, where the most that girls could hope for was to marry or to teach. Sybylla will do neither, but that doesn't stop her from falling in love, and it doesn't make the choices any easier.

This is a story not about a lost Australia, but a story that can give us all a bridge to understanding that Australia. Sensitive, passionate, sad... this story is to the Australian Bush what One Day is to London.
"Great book! "
Loved it! The narrator was great and the story was very interesting. Wasn't my first choice for a book pick but ended up being a really great listen!
