    I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this book.For its time, and the fact that it was written by Franklin when she was a teenager , it is a brilliant novel The writing ability that Franklin had so young is amazing she manages to capture so much of Australia, and her protagonist, Sybylla, lives and breathes from the first moment she steps onto the page.I did find Sybylla to be a frustrating protagonist, due to her general inability to decide on what she want I have a bit of a love hate relationship with this book.For its time, and the fact that it was written by Franklin when she was a teenager , it is a brilliant novel The writing ability that Franklin had so young is amazing she manages to capture so much of Australia, and her protagonist, Sybylla, lives and breathes from the first moment she steps onto the page.I did find Sybylla to be a frustrating protagonist, due to her general inability to decide on what she wants or who she wants , but t...

    Henry Lawson famously avoided making an opinion on the girlishly emotional parts of this book, so this girl reader is going out on a limb to say that it is precisely those parts that make this book worth reading In refusing to give us a romantic heroine who plays by the rules of the genre, Miles Franklin has created a rare and fascinating character Instead of reassuring us, Franklin leaves open the crucial questions of what is good conduct in a young woman, and what is a price worth paying Henry Lawson famously avoided making an opinion on the girlishly emotional parts of this book, so this girl reader is going out on a limb to say that it is precisely those parts that make this book worth reading In refusing to give us a romantic heroine who plays by the rules of the genre, Miles Franklin has created a rare and fascinating character Instead of reassuring us, Franklin leaves open the crucial questions of what is good conduct in a young woman, and what is a price worth paying to secure financial security The teenage Sybylla is flamboyant, disrespectful and given to frequent solipsism She is driven almost mad by her lack of options as a poor and apparently ugly little bush girl and despite the obvious economic risks refuses to conform or even apologise for that lack of conformity where this would imply divergence with her own conscience Ralph Waldo Emerson as author of...

    I was expecting a muchenjoyable read than this since I have mainly enjoyed the Australian novels I have read in the past This is a classic and there is no doubt that this writer had talent and I can see why she later made a career out of writing, but this novel, which was written when she was 16 has a protagonist who was apparently ahead of her time yes and no, since there were others of that time with the same commitment to not marry, and even before her time, although it was certainly I was expecting a muchenjoyable read than this since I have mainly enjoyed the Australian novels I have read in the past This is a classic and there is no doubt that this writer had talent and I can see why she later made a career out of writing, but this novel, which was written when she was 16 has a protagonist who was apparently ahead of her time yes and no, since there were others of that time with the same commitment to not marry,...

    The author based this story of a young girl struggling to become a writer despite her lowly circumstances The movie starring Judy Davis inspired me to read this novel Both are excellent.
