AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A tale of one woman's driving ambition and all-consuming passion. Sexually abused by her father and raised by her Irish landlady (later discovered to be the owner of Sydney's most notorious brothel), Lenore Hamlyn is determined to escape her sordid past. Defiant and determined, she emerges from her working-class background to become the charismatic and calculating Anthea James - Australia's most powerful and highly-paid media personality. Driven by her dream of achieving freedom for all women, Anthea James has her sights set on gaining the ultimate in political power. But out of Anthea's past emerges the only man she has ever loved, who now has the power to destroy her. (Source: Trove)
