    'The writer whom many of the critics call one of the greatest of novelists has here told the story of her own childhood and youth. When Henry (Ethel F. Lindesay Robertson) died she left all but completed a volume of autobiography concerned with her youth in Australia, her subsequent stay in Leipzig and the first years of her intensely happy marriage. Final details were available from the notes and diary of her husband, and these together with an essay on her work are added to complete the book.' (Publication summary)
