The Road from Coorain

The Road from Coorain Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One women's journey from a childhood in Australia's outback to adulthood as a successful American career woman. The Road From Coorain is about Everywoman, for it is about childhood loneliness, anguished parent-child relationships, dawning sensibility, discovering a vocation, and finding one's own sense of self.

Review:

"A remarkable memoir....A tale of 'guilt transformed into an intellectual calling,' the awakening at once of a heart and a historian." Verlyn Klinkenborg, New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Sheer delight...A graceful, thoughtful, vibrantly detailed book...teeming with discoveries." Alida Becker, Washington Post Book World

Review:

"A wonderful book...A fresh exploration of those eternal questions: Where am I from? How has that shaped me? Where do I belong?...A rare sensibility informs it." Charlotte Innes, Philadelphia Inquirer
