In 1960, Jill Ker Conway arrived in America from Australia. This book, the sequel to "Road from Coorain", tells the story of her gradual acclimatisation to a new continent; her discovery of the world of intellectual, energetic women; her romance and marriage to John Conway - a war hero and Harvard House Master; and their year-long European honeymoon during which she came to grips with the reality of John's manic-depressive disorder, as well as the lingering, poisonous anger of her mother. The process of learning to live with a spouse and retain personal integrity is vividly portrayed, as is the working out of dual careers. We see Jill discovering who she is - her strengths and weaknesses - and we watch as a most private woman begins to operate with a public persona that engages and enlivens a new-found creativity and energy.
