Detailed item info

In 1814, Dorothea Brande leaves the quiet harmony of her Devonshire home and accompanies her officer husband, Charles, to the colony of New South Wales. Here she endeavours to escape the harshness of the landscape - and the appalling brutality of common existence - by cultivating an English garden with the help of her convict manservant, Daniel. Together, in the creation of this garden, two bereft and disoriented people find a new strength and a special kind of refuge. But while Dorothea begins to adapt to the unforgiving environment, her husband is increasingly destroyed by it - until at last they stand on opposite sides of an unbridgeable gulf. Absorbing, deftly handled and beautifully written, The Gentleman's Garden is a wonderful, romantic vel of a woman's difficult personal journey in a time of a developing Australian society. An intelligent romance and absorbing account of life in Australia in the 1880s. Australian Women s Weekly

Description: When Dorothea Brande leaves her English home for 1814 Australia, she discovers a strength that allows her to adapt to her harsh new environment, even as her soldier husband is slowly destroyed by their new world. Original.

Set in colonial Australia, this romantic novel explores love, hardship, and the strength of the human spirit. Dorothea Brande leaves the quiet harmony of her English home to accompany her soldier husband to rough-and-tumble Sydney in 1814. To soften the harshness of their life there, she begins cultivating an English garden with the help of her convict manservant, Daniel. Together, in the creation of this garden, Dorothea and Daniel find a new strength and a special kind of refuge, both in the garden and with each other. Dorothea begins to adapt to her unforgiving new environment, but her husband is steadily destroyed by it. Written in the spirit of the works of Jane Austen and George Eliot, the novel is set against a vivid backdrop of the political events of the time while the public and personal gossip of the day weave in and out of the storyline.
