About the Author

Jane Robinson was born in Edinburgh and brought up in North Yorkshire. After graduating from Somerville College, Oxford, he joined a firm of antiquarian book dealers specializing in travel, later leaving to pursue a writing career. She lives near Oxford with her husband and two sons. This is her fourth book.


'Jane Robinson has a good touch with titles.' - The Sunday Times, 10.10.99 'The 100 plus voices that make up this anthology are ruch and varied, ranging from missionaries to prostitutes and gold diggers to distressed gentlewomen hunting for husbands... For tips on how best to cook kangaroo meat, shoot quick and count your blessings - this is the book.'- Daily Mail, 1.10.99 'Jane Robinson's anthology contains some startling information.... there is more to this slim book than drama. We hear a variety of female voices and views. Some of the entries are touching and others amusing. Perhaps the most appealing aspect is the impression of the everyday joys and struggles of women accustoming themselves to the challenges of life in the British Empire.' - Anastasia Tolstoy, Literary Review, October 1999
