Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0522845134, Hardcover)This is the award-winning biography of Georgiana Huntly McCrae, illegitimate daughter of a Scottish duke, a professional portrait painter in 1820s Edinburgh, and a settler's wife in early Melbourne. The varied fortunes of the McCraes are recounted in a story whose tragic elements are counter-balanced by the strength of mind, the lively wit and creativity of Georgiana. By allowing Georgiana's own voice to be heard through her letters and journals Brenda Niall has brought a legendary colonial figure into authentic vibrant life.
