A Country To Be Reckoned With tells the story of a country and a man: George Matcham Pitt (GM), farmer, entrepreneur, master of rhetoric, founder of one of Australia’s first stock and stations agents, and my great great grandfather.
It is a sequel to The Worst Country in the World, about GM Pitt’s grandmother Mary Matcham Pitt (and my four times great grandmother), which sets out to try to understand why a 53-year-old widow with five children decided to emigrate to a penal colony in 1801.
The Unlikely Adventures of Claudia Faraday is a novel set in 1920s England, about a respectable society lady and mother of three discovering a surprising form of liberation in her middle years.
