This book is more than just an account of her friendship with Ethel Turner, it is an exploration into a very complex woman, a writer who chose for various reasons not to write her best and for the most part who lived in a sort of fantasy world, particularly towards the end - brave, headstrong and indomnitable. The last chapter, I'm sure will stay with me for its quintessential description of the Italian countryside and for Phelan's investigation into Mack's missing Italian years.
