Summary
"Her husband ws controversial. He was in the press, in the courts and in prison. Her husband was charismatic, voluble and irrepresible. He survived shipwreck, ruin and slander. Her husband was an entrepreneur, industrialist and pioneer. We continue to drink his beer; we still attend his theatre. His legacy is concrete. His place in history is secure. But this is not his story. Sophia Degraves survives only as a silent register of birth and death. Nothing is known of her beyond the children she bore and the death she died. This catalogue says nothing of the privations and asperations of an invisible colonial woman who built in flesh and blood what the men around built with water and stone. This is her story, written by imagining what was real."--Back cover
