Women, history, journey: Robyn Cadwallader & Eleanor Limprecht

From 1300s London to 1940s Sydney, Robyn Cadwallader and Eleanor Limprecht have written striking novels exploring the role of women in these significant, turbulent historical periods. 

Eleanor Limprecht’s The Passengers sees Hannah exploring the life, love and losses of her grandmother Sarah, a war bride who left post-WW11 Sydney to join her American serviceman husband in San Diego.

Robyn Cadwallader’s The Book of Colours brings together three people whose lives change over the creation of an illuminated manuscript of prayers, a book of hours.

Evocatively recreating time and place, their characters push the boundaries of expectations. Their novels explore the journeys we take and the power we have within and without.

Join Robyn and Eleanor in conversation with Angharad Lodwick (Tinted Edges) about the chances and choices we take in life and we we can learn from historical fiction.
