    'The Women Come And Go is a memoir of several generations of working-class women from a Central Queensland family. Told through personal knowledge and memories, and recreations of events, along with family artefacts such as treasured love letters from the author's father to her mother, Jay Verney offers a story both intimate and relatable. The Women Come And Go considers the interdependent historical, cultural and personal contexts of the women's lives and how each generation has irrevocably influenced the next.

    'The second part of the book, The Women Came And Went, is an essay which critiques and reflects upon the memoir, establishing the background to its conception and creations and describing an Index of Artefacts both unique to the family and universally recognisable.' (Publication summary)
