AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Melbourne domestic tale of women's rights and colonial literature. A husband's temper and his intolerance of women who go beyond their domestic sphere prompts his wife to teach him a lesson. She secretly writes a novel which impresses him so much that he gives her a copy specially bound for her birthday - and only then discovers she is the author. A little schematic but interesting and lively; women's rights 'safely' dealt with - within marriage, etc. (PB)
