These letters were the starting point for Kate Grenville's bestselling novel A Room Made of Leaves. They inspired the portrait of her imagined Elizabeth Macarthur: shrewd, subtle, passionate. And they offer a glimpse into the complex inner life of one of our most powerful foremothers. Yet, until now, a general reader could only access a handful of them.


This book offers an edited selection, with commentary from Grenville, of the many letters Elizabeth Macarthur wrote 'home' from colonial Sydney over her long life-letters in which we can hear the voice of a remarkable woman. Circumstances confronted her with huge challenges, but also gave her opportunities unknown to most women of the time. It was a life of tumult, of griefs and joys-all faced with spirit, and recorded in this lively and engaging correspondence.
