Ma première lecture MM.
Borrowed from public library. Adult memoir. I must have read the Road from Coorain. This follows that. She's such a good writer. Australian born, educated at Harvard, married a Harvard prof, taught at U. of Toronto (1964-1975), President of Smith College (1975-1985) in Northhampton, Mass. Writes about discrimination against women in Australia, feminism, education, homeland, family, history -- all objectively -- and life. Quite a learning experience!
I did enjoy this book and felt it was fairly well-written. This is the first book I have read by this author. However, I did feel like the premise was a bit far-fetched. It was difficult to see how the author was going to resolve the fact that the heroine was a PIRATE...without actually killing her off. In the end, I think she did the best she could under the circumstances. I definitely felt that she did a good job at showing the heroine being brought to her senses and seeing that what she had done was really wrong and that she was a sinner in need of saving grace.
