About the Book
Her Story in Four Centuries shows that it is the women who hold society together, while men are lauded in the history books.
This insightful book telling the true stories of seven women spans four centuries. It testifies to the strength of mind of women forced to cope with wars and illness, while protecting and educating their children, and it explains how families survived as the British Empire spread.
Margaret Rudston was caught up in the English Civil War. When her husband died, she had to fight in court to keep the family property. Maria Barstow endured 20 years of Napoleonic wars in Danzig (now Gdansk in Poland), where her house was inhabited at different times by the future queen of Holland, the French army, Napoleon, and the Russian army. Mrs Jones and her children fled from Ireland when the French landed to support a rebellion. The Kelly sisters lived in Ireland through illness and the famine. Joan Webber taught in Malaya (now Malaysia), and escaped to Australia with her children during World War II, while her husband was fighting the Japanese.
The biographies of these seven remarkable women show how families pulling together keep the human spirit alive, even during the worst of times.
