Oct. 16, 2011 - PRLog -- This is the compelling story of an ordinary woman, born and bred in Melbourne at the very end of the 19th century. It is a journey of nostalgia through World War I, the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, the shocking aftermath of World War II.

Rose is the fifth child in a family of six. Although circumstances dictate that Rose becomes the backbone of her family, she is swept into the arms of a handsome but devious young man-about-town. Rose suffers rape, betrayal and abuse.

Meanwhile her family is touched closely by the trauma of war, women’s fight to vote, embezzlement, power struggles and the hardship of the Depression. Through all this, Rose is challenged, but  she shines through with resilience, courage and determination. She becomes The Matriarch.

Lynn Richards has been passionate about Yoga and Esoteric Studies for most of her adult life. She is a wife, mother, and grandmother living in the outskirts of Melbourne, Victoria.

Her interests include singing, creative dance, reading, writing and designing mandalas for adults and children.

Her books include: 'Breaking the Web', 'The Irresistible Web' and now 'The Matriarch'.

'The Matriarch' by Lynn Richards ISBN: 978-1-921731-96-9 RRP $23.95 Fiction
