Title

The Ladies of Missalonghi

Year Published

1988

Set in the early 1900’s in the tiny town of Byron, nestled in Australia’s Blue Mountains, this gem of a novel tells of the blossoming of Missy Wright, 33-year-old spinster and poor relation of the town’s ruling family, the Hurlingfords. Missy, her widowed mother and crippled aunt live in genteel poverty, victims of the Hurlingford inheritance policy that gives riches to the male members of the family, who heartlessly abuse the women they dominate. Plain, painfully thin and doomed to dress always in serviceable brown, Missy seems fated for a dreary future until a distant cousin, a divorcee, arrives from Sydney.
