Traces Magazine is back with another Friday Book Giveaway! This week’s spotlight book “Step up, Mrs Dugdale” by Lynne Leonhardt and it's one not to miss!
In 1867, Henrietta Augusta Dugdale, a dairywoman from Queenscliff, is pushed to breaking point and leaves her fourteen-year marriage. With access to her children denied, she enters the freethinking world of Melbourne bohemia and sets out to change the law that casts women as property, with no legal rights of their own.
Lynne Leonhardt creates a luminous tale of love, loss, triumph and fortitude, set against the evocative coastal landscape of Port Phillip Bay and the wonder-city of Melbourne and the height of the gold-rush boom.
